Understanding your aims is important to us: we want to hear what your business is trying to achieve strategically so that we can deliver the right legal solution for your business.
The benefit to your business is clear - our advice will be something that you can act on commercially, because it's always in the context of what's happening in your business and your industry.
That commitment to understanding our clients' business explains why the vast majority (around 80%) of the cases, deals and transactions that we handle are in the 6 sectors we know best.
Below are specific examples of how we get close to our clients' businesses in our sectors:
- We bring together the technology world and financiers (banks, VCs, private equity) to enable new investments into high-growth companies – the lifeblood for their future growth;
- We brought together the Energy and Technology worlds to break new ground in terms of Smart Grid and Clean Technology. Our track record of being an industry insider in Energy & Natural Resources goes back at least 20 years to the early days of wind power, when we advised on the very first matters in that area;
- We're at the cutting edge of developments in Real Estate, including the emergence of a Europe-wide student accommodation sector, and the advent of data centres across Europe;
- We are at the forefront of all the ground-breaking changes taking place in payments. We have brought together our technology, financial services, retail and telecommunications expertise to advise on ground-breaking, award-winning mobile payments matters.
As you'd expect from a firm whose mission to remain at the forefront of developments in its sectors, our hiring policy and the development of our lawyers is informed by the industries we work in - we place our people on secondments with our clients, and we are regularly in dialogue with the regulator(s), media and other stakeholders in your sector.
