Professional Services

When it comes to advising “the advisers”, it’s not just legal expertise that clients need – it’s also practical business support to help them operate more efficiently and effectively.

As professional services firms look to recruit and retain the best talent, establish optimal structures and technologies, and differentiate themselves from the fierce competition, they require lawyers like us who can guide them with insight, acumen and integrity.

With good reason, we have often been referred to as “the lawyer’s lawyers.” Over half the UK’s Top 30 law firms choose to instruct us, as do many other legal firms - from small boutiques to international practices.  We also routinely advise leading firms of accountants, consultants, architects, engineers and surveyors.  That such a discerning audience put their trust in us is a testament both to the fact that we add value, and to our specialist, pragmatic expertise.
