The fifth largest economy in the world, the UK's sophisticated market is dominated by the service sector and powered by a diverse, multicultural workforce.

The capital, London, is one of the world's largest financial centres and a hub for start ups with fresh ideas. This makes the city a perfect environment for a world-leading tech firm. We work closely with the CBI and Scale Up Institute and have an active Brexit group to give our clients a wider picture on the outlook for British business today.

We are a major player in the London legal market and on the international stage, with origins that date back to 1846.

Intellectual property has been in our DNA for over 100 years, having won our first patent case in 1909. We’ve always had a passion for innovative, creative industries, whilst protecting and progressing the ideas that arise from them. This 180-year unrivalled history has developed into our early adoption of an industry sector approach, which now runs through everything we do.

You have access to 270 lawyers in our London office, 30% of whom have a second or third qualification in a science or technical field. We work with clients across the domestic and multinational businesses, the public sector, SMEs and start-ups. Our clients often operate in industries where technology and the digital world are driving forces, so we make it a priority to stay ahead of the curve and meet your requirements.

The London legal market is being transformed and we are excited to play an active role in this change. We relish the opportunity to collaborate with clients to create more efficient ways of delivering legal services - you can find out more on our Client Solutions and Legal Ops pages.

In 2018, we were acknowledged by The Financial Times as one of Europe's most innovative firms, ranking in the top five.

The London office is headed by our London Management Team - Phil Sherrell, Matt Bonass, Zoe Feller.
