Overview

The corporate team at Field Seymour Parkes seeks to build long-standing relationships with our clients: relationships built on trust, where our clients think of FSP as a first port of call when they need any assistance, even if that assistance is simply a quick sense check on a proposition rather than a need for legal advice. We believe having such relationships with our clients helps us understand their businesses and priorities and therefore ensures that we can provide them with the advice and the solutions they need. We have a particular interest and therefore experience in advising owner managed businesses and are well known for providing practical and commercially minded advice and guidance.

Central to building such relationships is ensuring our staff share these values and are driven by a desire to both help and build strong relationships with clients. They need to be keen to provide high quality, constructive advice to clients and be alert to opportunities to add value, whether that be through making introductions, sharing developments that may be of interest to a client or otherwise.
