Established over 100 years ago, we have developed a strong and successful business from a partnership of talented individuals. Our strength lies in our ability to nurture technically gifted, personally committed and responsible people.

At our core we have an unshakeable integrity, which directs our behaviour and advice, and a strong belief that lawyers must always provide legal support with imagination and business insight. We do not see our role as merely telling you the law and what you can and cannot do. Instead, our lawyers seek not only to understand our clients, the challenges they face and the opportunities open to them, but also how in regulatory and economic terms our work impacts on clients’ plans to develop their own businesses in the markets in which they operate.

"Always prompt, full of industry knowledge and great value for money." Legal 500 2016

Our success has, in no small way, been a result of us building on the strength of our UK regional network of offices whilst developing appropriate international links. As a result, we offer a comprehensive and competitive range of commercial law services to local, national and international companies and private individuals.

We structure our approach to the management of client relationships to provide long term commitment and collaboration, and regularly provide support in partnership with other professionals, financiers, and investors.

"Despite the size of the firm, the service is on a personal level, which makes one feel very comfortable dealing with them." Chambers 2017

To be appointed as legal adviser to an individual or a business is a privileged responsibility. We do not forget that we are both representatives of, and ambassadors for, all our clients and place great importance on professionalism and courtesy.
