We have a genuine international practice. We advise clients on inward investments in Europe, Asia, the Middle East, Pacific Rim and the Americas. 40% of our turnover comes from international clients. In all of our areas of expertise, we do work which has an international element, whether it is in the fields of set ups, cross-border corporate transactions, international franchising, rolling trade mark protection programmes, international tax planning and international disputes or asset tracing.

Our objective is simple. We aim to help our clients trade and invest successfully on an international stage. Our experience and understanding of other cultural and legal approaches whilst providing a consistent service across the firm is our greatest strength.

We have offices in Brussels, Hamburg, Munich, London, Manchester, Palo Alto, Paris and Shanghai. We have eleven dedicated Country Desks. These teams of lawyers specialise in advising clients from a particular country on English law matters.

Each Country Desk includes lawyers across all key practice areas of the firm, some of whom are dual qualified and are able to provide legal assistance in the language of that country.
