We understand that many clients take a “horses for courses” approach to professional services and that using local lawyers for day to day business advice, in conjunction with City lawyers for more high profile work, can be a practical and cost-effective solution. As a result we are increasingly being asked to provide local support, in particular where clients’ in-house teams are being over-stretched. A number of our lawyers have had in-house experience during their careers which, combined with early-career experiences at top tier City law firms and our broad private practice expertise, means we are well-placed to assist in-house legal teams.

We have a track-record of working creatively with clients to come up with arrangements which meet their particular requirements and to compliment, rather than interfere with, any existing external legal support they may already receive from larger law firms. This can include providing staff on temporary secondments, providing a range of retainer and other flexible fee structures and running workshops for clients on topics of particular interest.
