International Lawyers

You operate in a global economy, you may be a UK business exporting or importing your products and services, you may be an overseas business investing in the UK or you may be an individual with interests abroad.

Quick Enquiry


We have drawn together a team of lawyers from across the firm to advise on international issues arising from the EU referendum. The team encompasses specialists in procurement law, state aid, intellectual property, IT, commercial contracts, data protection, corporate, immigration, private wealth, real estate, construction and litigation.

Much will depend upon the exit terms that will be agreed between the UK and the EU, and on the trade agreements to be reached between the UK and non-EU nations. Nevertheless, at this stage we can help you assess how well prepared you are for Brexit, and what steps you can take now to improve your positon.

We also have a dedicated page with news and updates relating to Brexit.

UK Inward Investors

If you are building a presence in the UK we can advise you on immigration and employment issues, on how to incorporate a UK trading entity or branch office, and help you protect your business and get legal contracts right.

If you are exporting our international lawyers can help you appoint agents, distributors and representatives and make sure that you have the right trading contracts and that you get paid on time.

If you are importing we can help with your import documentation and the regulations that apply in the UK.
