Legal 500: ‘The team is very accessible’.
Our clients are many and diverse in both their nature and their requirements, yet they all have one thing in common – the need for strong support, expert advice and empathy in crucial career moments or life choices.
We help support both people and businesses in a variety of industries, ranging from private individuals like CEOs and senior executives to personalities in the public eye, like actors and sports stars. We also work with medium-sized and major national and international companies across both the public and private sectors, in areas like local government, the NHS, education, manufacturing, aviation, business services and recruitment.
