About us

Ideas. People. Possibilities.

We work with leading businesses to protect and enhance their most important assets — their ideas, their people, and their future. We call it: Ideas. People. Possibilities.

Our culture is encapsulated by our ethos of bravery and kindness. We aim to provide a supportive environment for our people, clients and wider community and embrace diversity, ensuring people are able to bring their full selves to work. 

We have two things at our core: people — both ours and yours — and a focus on creative, tech and innovation. 

We are passionate about people. Whether you are a fast growth start up or a large multinational business, we help you realise the potential in your people and navigate your strategic HR and legal issues, both nationally and internationally. Our award-winning employment team is one of the largest in the UK, with dedicated specialists in all areas of employment law and a track record of leading precedent setting cases on issues of the day. The team’s breadth of expertise is unrivalled and includes HR consultants as well as experts across specialisms including employment, immigration, data, tax and reward, health and safety, reputation management, dispute resolution, corporate and workplace environment.   

Creativity, technology and innovation are at the heart of everything we do. It is reflected in the way we work, as well as in the types of businesses we work with. We help bring your ideas to life by working alongside you as a trusted partner and bringing together leading commercial, corporate, data and privacy, dispute resolution, employment, immigration, intellectual property and real estate lawyers to help create, optimise, manage and protect your ideas and your business.

With offices across the UK, Ireland and Hong Kong, and with strategic alliances across the globe, we are recognised by clients and industry alike as being distinct for our unique culture and for providing solutions to complex, multi-jurisdictional business challenges with a pragmatic and human touch. So whether it is providing international employment law advice, managing a global IP portfolio or leading on a cross-border corporate transaction, we have the right people, in the right places, at the right time, to support you.
