We are a transatlantic law firm with offices in the UK and the US. Our purpose is to make whole those who have suffered injustice. Our vision is a better world where the law works for everyone.
We share the horror and outrage over President Putin’s illegal war of aggression against Ukraine. We support the sanctions against Russia and the effort to help refugees. Being a values-driven law firm means we get to choose cases and clients we believe deeply in. It means we can choose to put our collective commercial power behind those values. For that reason, we will not engage any clients with ties to the Russian regime, any state-owned Russian entities or any entities targeted by international sanctions. Anyone, including Russian nationals, needing legal assistance against those entities is of course more than welcome to approach us.
