Our purpose remains rooted in our founding values. We have always been driven by an entrepreneurial, tenacious and socially conscious spirit: one that has always embraced change in order to stay relevant and shape the future.

From our offices in London and Singapore, and through our association with Karas LLP in Hong Kong, we still counsel clients around the world with the same vision, dedication and passion that we set out with. We continue to fight for freedoms, settle disputes, protect assets and grow businesses. We fiercely guard our clients’ interests and appreciate the privilege of sitting alongside them as a trusted advisor.

However, we believe that lawyers must move from the age of instruction to the age of anticipation: to be pro-active, harness the law’s potential and unlock possibilities others do not see, and to champion diversity, innovation and sustainability.

We appreciate that business has never been so personal.
