*through a formal alliance with Hashidate Law Office. 

Preferred Firms

Our Preferred Firms cover all major jurisdictions and regions and are locally well-regarded. They are significant, independent, commercial law firms capable of delivering a standard of service on par with our own. Firms are chosen carefully for the quality of their reputation, technical advice and client service.

We enjoy close but non-exclusive relationships of mutual trust and commitment with them, supported by a high level of personal contact through regular meetings both in the UK and overseas. We invest significant time and resource in these relationships to provide clients with seamless cross-border capability.

In addition to working together directly on cross-border matters, we share information on respective working practices, have personnel exchanges (secondments) and contribute to each other’s seminars and training programmes. 

Business Groups

Working independently and also alongside our Preferred Firms, we have built up a wealth of insight and specialist expertise in all the major jurisdictions. We draw this knowledge together through our multi-disciplinary, international groups.
