THE FIRM:

Fieldfisher is a European law firm with market-leading practices in many of the world’s most dynamic sectors. It is an exciting, forward-thinking organisation, with established sector expertise in technology, financial services, energy & natural resources and life sciences.

Fieldfisher’s Corporate, Regulatory, Employment & Pensions, Financial Markets & Products, Real Estate and Technology & Data practices regularly attract complex and high-profile mandates from UK and international clients. Its highly-acclaimed Dispute Resolution practice is well-versed in resolving challenging contentious issues and high-value disputes for clients crossing sectors and geographical regions.

A distinct part of the Fieldfisher brand is also its award-winning Personal Injury and Medical Negligence team, renowned for its sensitive approach to handling difficult claims and achieving the best possible outcomes for its clients.

A consistent investment in developing innovative client solutions has resulted in the establishment of Condor, Fieldfisher Capital, DLC and Roscoe Reid, Fieldfisher’s highly successful and sought-after alternative legal services brands. The most recent addition is Fieldfisher X, a Berlin-based operation focusing on Germany’s mass litigation market.

Fieldfisher is a law firm built around people, with down-to-earth lawyers who strike a healthy balance between legal excellence and a practical approach to clients’ needs. The firm’s legal specialists service a truly international client base, comprising some of the biggest global corporations. They include major technology firms, consulting and digital services, pharmaceuticals, life sciences and medical devices companies, energy suppliers, infrastructure and chemicals companies, as well as global banks and financial institutions.

Clients choose to work with Fieldfisher because it delivers commercial, pragmatic and innovative solutions through its exceptional legal expertise and experience, on time and to budget.

Fieldfisher’s growing international network stretches across 25 locations in 11 countries: Belgium, China, France, Germany, Italy, Luxembourg, the Netherlands, Ireland, Spain, the UK and the US. Its UK offices include London, Manchester, Birmingham and Belfast.

Fieldfisher is an inclusive employer. Over the past three years, 46% of newly promoted partners were women, with the figure rising to 60% in 2022.

Broadening access to the legal profession is a priority for Fieldfisher, in which the firm has always shown leadership. The firm has developed and implemented several innovative social mobility programmes in partnership with its key clients Peloton, Gensler and ViacomCBS.

To support people during challenging times in their lives, Fieldfisher has developed a range of policies including pregnancy loss and parental bereavement services, domestic abuse support and carers' and dependants’ leave policies. It was one of the first law firms to offer menopause support and neurodiversity policies.

Fieldisher is proud of its progressive and growing ESG agenda. It has continued to work with Planet Mark, an internationally recognised sustainability certification provider, to bring down its carbon emissions year-on-year. The firm also provides pro bono support to several environmental and conservation charities
