A legal pioneer, Keystone Law was established in 2002 by a group of forward-thinking lawyers who were determined to build a law firm that would serve the needs of its clients more effectively than the conventional alternatives. Now a full-service AIM listed firm with 350 lawyers, Keystone has won countless awards and is considered a significant force within the legal sector.
Representing somewhat of a dichotomy, Keystone invests heavily in technology in order to increase human interaction, enhance relationships between lawyers and clients whilst also improving many legal processes. The firm also has a policy of only recruiting senior partner-level lawyers from the UK’s best law firms which ensures clients benefit from direct access to highly experienced lawyers (typically Keystone lawyers have 20+ years’ experience) who are therefore able to resolve matters quickly and efficiently.
While predominantly advising businesses on a wide range of legal matters, Keystone’s private client team also caters to the needs of high-net worth individuals and senior executives. The firm’s offering is delivered across 23 service areas and 16 sectors with clients including: BBC, Bosch, Siemens, RSA, Cancer Research Technology, the V&A, Galderma, Glencore, Hiscox, Nationwide and Thyssenkrupp.
