As you would expect from a leading full-service firm, we offer a comprehensive range of legal services to our clients. Our services are grouped into broad practice groups which encompass contentious and non-contentious disciplines. Our lawyers work in teams based within specific practice groups for organisational purposes, but often work in cross-group teams on specific projects.
Our six practice groups and the disciplines they contain are briefly described below, but you can find more detailed information in Expertise.
