Our aims are simple. We want to form long-lasting relationships with our clients and be entrusted with their most difficult and complex problems in the areas where we practise. We also want to find, recruit and train individuals from all backgrounds, who we hope will one day shape and lead the firm. In order to achieve these aims, we operate differently to others.
A simple model
We have chosen to remain small by comparison to other firms and to practise only in areas where we can legitimately claim to be market leaders. We operate from two offices; in London (our main office) and a smaller office in Brussels focused on the provision of EU law.
Our business structure is simple and allows us to devote our attention to our clients and our people. We are a firm that recruits people to build careers for the long term. We all know each other personally and can work together with more cohesion, and less formality. We can be truly focused on our clients’ needs, without the complexity of our larger multinational competitors.
A different international approach
Our international model is also simple. We want to work with the best lawyers for the job in each jurisdiction serving the best interests of our clients. We have a strong international network who share our values and standards. This gives our clients choice and enables us to provide them with the highest possible levels of service.
An entrepreneurial practice
The scope of our services is distinct. Our transactional groups operate internationally both in the public and private markets, advising on the largest, highest-profile and most complex deals. In the last 10 years we have increasingly focused on disputes and are now one of the foremost firms in this area. We are also unusual in having market-leading teams servicing the tax advisory needs of both individuals and corporates, which cannot be found elsewhere. This range of services is strongly entrepreneurial, which is also reflected in the way we run our own business.
A human-sized culture
We want to recruit, train and retain the best people. We have a strong, independent culture, which is challenging but supportive, and we want to create an environment where everyone, at whatever level, can thrive.
Whether you want to instruct us as a client, or to work with us as a colleague, we would be pleased to hear from you.
