Thirty years of excellence, specialist expertise and a pioneering approach to complex litigation

It seems only yesterday that we opened the doors of our previous home in Lincoln’s Inn Fields. Thirty years later, we have nearly 400 staff, including 68 partners, and have exceeded £70m in turnover. Most importantly, we have achieved excellent outcomes for our clients.

We are all facing exceptionally challenging times, but wish to take a moment to thank our clients, our employees and our friends for their support over the last 30 years.

Our best wishes for the weeks and months ahead.
