International Services for Business

Our team offers a first rate, commercially minded service that anticipates clients’ needs and give them the knowledge and confidence to operate across borders and move into new markets.

We have wide experience of advising both regional and London-based organisations, connecting them with their international markets, in a cost-effective offering that rivals large city firms. We are sensitive to cultural differences and varying legal requirements across the world.

Fundamental to our international delivery are our long-term relationships with trusted legal colleagues across the globe. This allows us to be able to meet all of our clients’ legal needs by providing fully integrated local expertise within a global context.
