Our London office is the hub of Clyde & Co's global network. We provide a full legal offering based on genuine sector expertise to advise clients across 120 countries.
Insurance and reinsurance has been described as “at the heart of what Clyde & Co does best”. Out of our expertise in this sector, we have built leading practices in the related industries of shipping, aviation, international trade, energy, commodities and financial services.
This sector-based approach means we field industry specialists across our focus industries. Rounding out our London offering are strong corporate/commercial and real estate practices which, alongside our Guildford office, provide a full legal service to clients in our core areas. We also have a consistently award-winning dispute resolution team which dominates the London Courts and punches way above its weight. Our work across the board is complex, multi-jurisdictional and high-value.
With 150 marine lawyers in key offices, our shipping practice is world class and advises on nearly every major marine casualty. Combined with an aviation practice that has been awarded “Global Aviation Law Firm of the Year” for the last five years, our lawyers have advised on virtually every major catastrophe in the world. Headline events such as 9/11, Enron or Hurricane Katrina will inevitably see a team of Clyde & Co lawyers involved.
We have one of the largest dedicated international trade and energy teams in the UK, who for over 20 years have been working with leading energy multinationals. Our work is wide-ranging and complex and is strongly augmented by the growth of our Middle East, Asian, African and European offices.
Our experience is rich, vast and diverse. Clyde & Co London lawyers are international and local experts. Reflecting our track record in difficult jurisdictions, we were awarded the Queens Award for Enterprise in the field of international trade.
The London office co-ordinates extensively with our 26 other international offices on both substantive and technical matters. We house specialist teams like the Latin America, Russia and Central Asia groups who travel and work extensively in their respective regions throughout the year.
Associated India law firm Clasis Law also has a London office. The office is fully staffed with Indian qualified lawyers providing advice on matters relating solely to Indian law thereby strengthening Clyde & Co's capability and capacity to provide Indian legal advice on all matters relating to Indian law and jurisdiction.
Clasis Law partners, including the two UK based partners, are available to work alongside Clyde partners on joint projects in a range of sectors including infrastructure/energy, transport, insurance, international trade, finance and foreign direct investment.
