Yes. Most of our work is for international clients or clients with a significant presence overseas.

The nature of modern commerce means that transactions often cross borders and involve multiple jurisdictions. The first, important step, is to understand which jurisdictions’ laws and regulations are applicable. We can advise on that.

Criminal law is becoming increasingly extra-territorial in its reach and you might fall within its jurisdiction in circumstances that may surprise you. The jurisdictional reach of the bribery offences under the UK Bribery Act, for example, extends to offences that are committed or partly committed in the United Kingdom and offences committed abroad by persons with a close connection to the United Kingdom.

We also work closely with carefully selected partners across the Globe whom we can call upon at a moment’s notice to advise on matters of foreign law and procedure.

We pride ourselves on being able to deliver flexible, tailored pricing models to suit our clients’ businesses. Some clients prefer hourly rates, but much of our work is also undertaken on a fixed fee basis, so that our clients can benefit from transparency, certainty, and the ability to budget, regardless of the complexity or size of the instruction.

None of our lawyers have billable hour targets because we don’t believe that this delivers the best efficiencies, service, or value for our clients. We believe that the most important thing we can deliver to our clients is the quality of our advice and not just the number of hours that our lawyers work.

We are based on London but we operate across the Globe. We work wherever our clients need us to work and have significant experience of overseas investigations and litigation. Almost all of our work involves international elements. More details of our international work can be found here.
