About Bird & Bird

We are a truly international firm, organised around our clients. With our full service offering and extensive tech expertise, we’ll help you unlock the potential of change to realise your ambitions.


Everything is connected.

With more than 1,600 lawyers and legal practitioners across a worldwide network of 32 offices, Bird & Bird delivers expertise across a full range of legal services. Our specialisms include advice on commercial, corporate, EU and competition, intellectual property, dispute resolution, employment, finance and real estate matters.

The key to our success is our constantly evolving sector-focused approach. Our clients build their businesses on technology and intangible assets, and operate in regulated markets. To better meet their needs we have developed deep industry understanding of key sectors, including automotive, aviation & defence, energy & utilities, financial services, life sciences & healthcare, retail & consumer, media, entertainment & sport and tech & comms.


What this means for you:

  • Expertise in the legal and regulatory framework relating to each sector.
  • A more practical, commercial approach, supported by advisors with decades of experience working in the relevant industries.


International reach

We have offices in key business centres across the globe:

Europe: Amsterdam, Bratislava, Brussels, Budapest, Copenhagen, Dublin, Düsseldorf, Frankfurt, The Hague, Hamburg, Helsinki, London, Luxembourg, Lyon, Madrid, Milan, Munich, Paris, Prague, Rome, Stockholm and Warsaw.

Middle East, Asia-Pacific & North Africa: Abu Dhabi, Beijing, Dubai, Hong Kong, Shanghai, Shenzhen, Singapore, Sydney and Casablanca.

North America: San Francisco.


We were the first truly international firm with a presence in Denmark, Finland and Sweden, ideally positioning us to support companies looking to invest in the Nordic region.

In 2018 we opened a representative office in San Francisco to better support our US-based clients. We have also recently opened an office in Dublin, where some of the world's most innovative companies reside, and cemented our presence in Greater China with the establishment of an office in Shenzhen.

In addition, focus groups for Africa, India and Japan and extensive cooperation agreements with local firms increase our reach to other key jurisdictions.


Excellence in client service

We operate as one truly international partnership: our goals, accounting and profit pool are all shared, as is our commitment to providing our clients with advice from the right lawyers, in the right locations. Our open and engaged business culture allows us to configure quickly and effectively to the commercial pressures and opportunities faced by our clients.
