Solicitors in London
Birketts merged with leading London-based boutique insurance law firm EC3 Legal on 30 April 2020. This union allowed us to build on existing strengths and to expand the range and depth of services on offer to our clients and the wider market place.
The merger enabled Birketts to build upon its burgeoning reputation for international work for clients based in the UK and to those abroad with financial or business interests in the UK
EC3 Legal was set up to fill a gap in the legal services market for the insurance industry. Bringing together unrivalled City experience and quality on realistic terms we serve the London and International insurance markets in the widest sense.
