The Thames Valley is one of the top UK destinations for international businesses because of the exceptional level of international connectivity that being near to a hub airport offers. This is only set to increase with the addition of a third runway at Heathrow.

Located in Reading, in the heart of the Thames Valley, Field Seymour Parkes is ideally placed to serve the needs of overseas clients.  Just a short journey away from London (and even closer to Heathrow airport), we cater for the diverse needs of international clients.  With highly experienced lawyers - many with a City background - FSP's international team offers a cost-effective and practical alternative to the international practices in London.

We are commited to offering our clients a "one stop shop" for their UK and associated overseas legal requirements.  We work hard to provide exceptional and pragmatic English law advice that you can use and understand. We will work efficiently alongside incumbent legal advisors in other jurisdictions or, where there are none, we have a tried, tested and trusted network of global legal advisors that we can look to, to ensure our clients need only engage with lawyers in one jurisdiction in order to service all their international needs.

The experience we have gained, from working with substantial corporations across the UK and overseas, means that we can offer the strength and depth of a major law firm, as well as being able to offer nationally recognised experts in all key practice areas relevant to our clients' businesses.
