Our lawyers have decades of experience working across European borders and supporting clients wherever they go. Whether a company or individual’s concerns are limited to a single country or include several jurisdictions, we can help. From corporate deals to complex regulatory challenges we support our clients across the European continent.
We act for companies operating in Europe looking to establish or further their operations in the UK, as well as support our UK and international client base in Europe, providing them with the legal expertise to achieve their business objectives.
Following Brexit, companies are faced with the rapidly changing regulatory environment both in the UK and the EU. Our lawyers have significant expertise advising clients from start-ups to long established companies on the relevant European and UK regulations. Our expertise stetches from data protection and privacy to financial services and travel law as we support our clients in the sectors that will be most affected by regulatory divergence. Our IP team also has a strong track record advising on brand protection in the UK, EU and national EU territories including co-ordinating infringement disputes.
With the new immigration rules in the UK beginning to take effect, we continue to build on our strong track record of providing immigration and employment advice to European companies and individuals looking to move to the UK.
Our wider international strategy of fostering relationships with like-minded lawyers in key jurisdictions has allowed us to continue to provide our clients with high quality service wherever they do business. Our dedicated teams for countries such as Switzerland, Germany and France deepen our knowledge of these jurisdictions and foster our relationships with key legal and business professionals.
This is solidified by our membership of the International Association of Lawyers which includes legal experts from across the continent and through active and significant involvement with the IBA. We also host and attend conference events with European contacts which includes our well renowned Pre-Moot, regularly attended by teams from the leading European universities as well as worldwide.
