Alongside our core business areas of corporate and commercial, commercial property, commercial and personal litigation and private client law, we have leading solicitors in specialist areas of the law such as shipping and transportation, agricultural and rural property, construction and planning, strategic land development, corporate criminal defence and intellectual property rights. We have also established industry sector groups, assembling lawyers with a knowledge and understanding of the issues relevant to sectors such as family owned and run businesses, food production and processing, logistics, technology, motor retail, energy, health and education. We provide a wide reaching international service to our clients through our close working relationships with leading independent law firms around and world and through our alliance with the IAG network.
Our most important asset is the professional skill and integrity of our lawyers. We are committed to employing and retaining personnel with the experience and technical expertise necessary to ensure we are equipped to meet our clients' objectives. Our broad range of resource means we can provide the right person for the job taking into account complexity and cost and give value for money to our clients.
Our reputation is of durability and reliability, combined with innovative applications of modern technology. We are flexible about everything except the professional and ethical standards which we maintain rigorously and with the confidence of our good name. This is reflected in the Law Society's practice management accreditation, "Lexcel" which we have held since 2001.
