We advise foreign companies and individuals on all aspects of setting up and running a business in the UK – from establishing a branch or subsidiary, to its ultimate demise. Our corporate team has many years’ experience of advising foreign clients, many of them SMEs or family businesses specialising in a particular sector, and guiding them through the intricacies of English law. Our lawyers speak several foreign languages including French, German, Italian and Cantonese. Much of our work involves cross border transactions, often between companies who are not directly connected with the UK but have chosen English law as the governing law of their contracts. In this way they are able to take advantage of a sophisticated legal system and world class court and arbitration systems which give certainty and reliability to their transactions.
