Our Guildford office fields over 100 lawyers who form an integral part of our international practice groups. It is also home to our business law group which has a burgeoning practice in the South East.
The booming technology, retail, leisure, and service industries of the South East form a dynamic regional backdrop to our business law group. Our leading transactional and contentious lawyers are well placed to help clients face any legal challenge. We routinely undertake City quality work for household names such as the Carphone Warehouse, Chevron, DHL, G4S and Royal Bank of Scotland.
As part of our comprehensive offering, we work for a number of clients in the manufacturing, IT, telecoms, media and logistics industries offering them a range of commercial legal advice including intellectual property, EC competition/regulatory, e-commerce and employment law.
Our Guildford office also has teams of lawyers who work in our integrated UK practice groups across our some of the firm’s core sectors of marine, insurance and reinsurance and real estate. We include a number of leading experts in our teams who handle complex, international work from this office. For example, we advised on a dispute over the ownership and control of privatised Ukrainian power companies in the aftermath of the Orange Revolution.
The Guildford office works in close concert with the London office, but due to the multi-jurisdictional nature of our work, we often work just as closely with our international offices around the globe.
