Listening to what clients want

by focusing on our key sectors

We have a committed focus on our key sectors – asset management & investment funds, financial institutions, life sciences and technology, media & telecommunications (TMT).  We view the world through the lens of these important sectors.  We offer a deep commercial knowledge of each of these industries and our clients benefit from a team of lawyers fully focused on their sector, wholly understanding of the challenges that they face and completely tuned in to their needs.

by putting collaborative relationships at the heart of the way we work

Understanding exactly what each of our clients needs and wants lies at the heart of our approach to law. We take a long term view and we take time to understand the distinct demands that each client faces. This allows us to build a bespoke service to suit each relationship. Our approach means that we are consistent in the standard of excellence we bring to our services and flexible enough to build into each relationship value that is meaningful for each client.

We believe that one size does not fit all when it comes to adding value to client relationships. When partner level secondments were rare elsewhere in the legal world, they were a striking example of our commitment to building truly collaborative relationships with our clients. In 2012, we opened our second UK office, in Bristol, in a direct response to our clients' requirements for more flexible ways to staff matters and transactions. In 2015, to broaden our strong offering to clients in the Asset Management and Financial Institutions sectors, we opened our Luxembourg office.
