A full service UK 200 corporate law firm

We provide the full range of services that most businesses and other organisations need from day to day. We also offer specialist services in sectors such as healthcare, house building, independent schools, chemicals, waste management, road transport and technology-driven property services. We have particular expertise in dealing with telecom masts, dilapidations and overseas investment in UK property.

Through our Interlegal network we have global reach, providing access to lawyers in every major jurisdiction, from Brussels to Budapest, Lisbon to Los Angeles, Moscow to Montevideo and Shanghai to Sao Paulo. We also have an office facility in the City of London.

We are listed among the UK’s largest 150 law firms in The Lawyer top 200 where we have been described as a ‘stand-out performer’. We continue to strengthen our position, with our latest end of year results reporting an increase in turnover by 9.25% up to £17.6 million for the financial year 2018/19. That growth has been organic. We value our independence. We have developed a strong culture, based on attracting talented people who want to build their career with us. We look for lawyers who can deal with the small print, yet always see the big picture.
