About Us

We are a leading commercial law firm and our clients range from individuals and families to global businesses and government departments. We offer a wide range of legal expertise and are constantly investing in new specialisms to ensure that we can offer excellent advice to our clients across all aspects of their business.

We have offices in Cambridge, LeicesterManchester, Milton Keynes, Northampton and Norwich although our clients are drawn from across the world.  This is because we believe that the most important thing is not where we are but where our clients need us.  That is why we have invested heavily in technology such as high-quality video conferencing facilities to ensure that the most important office is our sixth office – the one that is wherever you need us to be.

Our lawyers are recruited from a variety of backgrounds. Many trained with us, others have come to us from prestigious international and city firms and some have a proven background in industry. This means that our clients are served by an excellent mix of high-quality lawyers with a wide-range of experience and all of whom share a desire to do their best for each client.

We pride ourselves on the professional approach we take in everything we do, delivering excellence as standard.  As a result, we have achieved nationally and internationally recognised accreditation awards including Investors in People, Lexcel Practice Management and ISO 9001:2008.  Achieving these accreditations reflects our focus on quality and our commitment to providing excellent service. 

Our vision is simple - to deliver Excellence as Standard
