Our Independent Strategy
We are an independent law firm with a first class international reputation. This has been built on our ability to manage and support our clients across the world.
We do this through our ‘best friend’ network of trusted leading local firms which offer the best-fit for our clients’ specific requirements in other jurisdictions. Our “best friends” are chosen to reflect the areas of expertise typically required by our clients. They consistently meet our values, approach to fees and client service standards.
“…quality of service that makes it clear that they value your business. The speed and accuracy of their actions and advice save money and are enormously helpful in the decision-making process.” – Chambers
Our approach successfully brings together lawyers who are regularly dealing with international commercial issues together with the experience which comes from many years of advising global operations headquartered in the US, Europe and Asia.
International and cross-border support
Our international network can support all our client’s cross-border needs from multi-jurisdictional M&A deals to specific international trade matters. We have access to local law firms who are in the best position to understand the local market and solve your problems. We are flexible and can direct you to a local law firm to instruct directly or manage the law firm and project for you.
