We aim to combine our deep knowledge of defence and security with our practical legal experience to develop commercial solutions that make long-term business sense for you.
We have been working extensively in defence and security since 2004, and have have advised on just about every type of agreement, transaction and dispute that the industry presents. Our global team has been involved in some of the most significant military procurement programmes undertaken and our work has covered projects in the naval, land, combat, air, medical, satellite, communications, IT and technology areas.
Our vision is to be the number one law firm for defence and security organisations being changed by technology and the digital world. Defence and Security is being transformed on an unprecedented scale, and at an unprecedented pace, by the opportunities and challenges presented by new technologies such as the Internet of Things, Big Data, advanced analytics, cloud computing, blockchain and AI. Our expertise in these technologies means we understand the issues facing you and can provide you with the support you need to solve them.
We have in-depth experience of defence contracting and negotiating with the UK Ministry of Defence, both in the naval area and more widely. As a result, we understand the key issues that arise in this specialist area and the key concerns that tend to drive the MOD approach. This, together with our appreciation of the constraints imposed by the MOD's governance and approval processes, enables us to achieve legal and operational solutions and effectively mitigate contractor risk.
Our market-leading public procurement expertise enables us to guide contractors through whichever formal procurement process the MOD decides to adopt and help shape an effective bid strategy.
We are also highly experience in advising on offset projects in a number of international markets.
