We provide the full spectrum of support to in-house lawyers including employment, commercial, IP, technology, data protection, dispute resolution, property, corporate and regulatory advice. We are often seen as an extension to the in-house team, providing insightful, understanding and effective support to in-house lawyers informed by the full breadth of our experience and our understanding of the varied sectors in which we work.
Many of our lawyers have worked in-house or have spent their careers working with in-house lawyers.
