THE FIRM

A UK top 75 law firm with offices in London, Oxford, Cardiff, Dublin and Hong Kong, they are recognised by clients and industry alike as being distinct: for their strong, unique culture, market-leading practice areas, sector focused approach and for providing solutions to complex, multijurisdictional business challenges, with a pragmatic and human touch. They have two things at their core: people — both theirs and their clients’— and a focus on creative, tech and innovative businesses.

From entrepreneurial start-ups to global household names, they leverage market leading expertise across disciplines including commercial, corporate, data and privacy, dispute resolution, employment, immigration, intellectual property and real estate to help bring their clients’ ideas to life — protecting, defending and optimising their ideas and building their businesses. Their integrated 360 degree offering provides specialist expertise to help clients build their ideas into corporate strategies to support and drive key business goals, creating tangible value from intangible assets.

Their other passion is people — both their people and their clients’ people. Their award-winning employment team is one of the largest in the UK, with dedicated experts in areas such as complex litigation, investigations, boardroom disputes, LLPs & partnerships, restructurings and redundancies, transactions, and Trade Unions and EWCs and a track record of leading precedent setting cases on issues of the day.

The culture is encapsulated by an ethos of bravery and kindness, guided by its values of Integrity, Clarity, Unity and Excellence (its ‘I-CUE’).
