Dealing with multi-jurisdictional matters is a key part of what we do for our clients in sectors ranging from retail to insurance, technology and brands to education and covering the broadest range of legal services. A clear understanding of international law and practice and strong alliances with law firms in other countries is vital for us to provide our clients with the framework to support their international activities. We choose the firms we work with very carefully and with the particular client in mind – the independent, non-exclusive nature of our networks, built up over many years and spanning all continents, means that our clients always get the right firm to look after their particular needs.

We are co-founders of an international network of independent law firms, Pangea Net – and our reach extends well beyond that; we have overseen the delivery of advice for our clients from 60 jurisdictions in the past 12 months alone.

what we do...

  • A global network, shared values and commitment to exceptional client service - from Argentina to China, the Cayman Islands to Singapore and Northern Ireland to New Zealand, we co-ordinate advice from legal teams who fully understand the local markets they are operating in and the constraints this sometimes imposes. 
  • Our clients - we act on international matters for some of the most well-known of brand names from luxury retailers to the Trustees of the Bernard Madoff investments, as well as for insurers of corporate clients where a claim has arisen overseas; we also provide advice to overseas governments in relation to projects that are governed by UK law. 
  • Cross-border financial services litigation including asset tracing and recovery and international fraud. 
  • Commercial agreements and contract law. 
  • Co-ordination of multi-jurisdictional compliance programmes covering IP and brand protection, advertising and health & safety regulations. 
  • EU competition law and anti-trust matters. 
  • Labour and employment advice across borders and for inbound and outbound employees. 
  • Company secretarial services for inward investors.
  • Intellectual property, trademark and patent infringements including dealing with multi-jurisdictional patent litigation claims. 
  • M&A, private equity, capital markets, joint ventures, reorganisations and cross border mergers.
