Practice Areas

  • Banking and finance
    Trainee solicitors in banking and finance will find opportunities in the existing and recovering market despite the downturn. Banking and finance lawyers are deal with the borrowing of money or the management of financial liabilities. Their task is to negotiate and document the contractual relationship between lenders and borrowers and ensure that their clients' best legal and commercial interests are reflected in the terms of loan agreements. It is a hugely technical, ever-evolving and jargon-heavy area of law.
  • Civil Rights
    Civil rights law aims to balance competing interests between institutions of government on the one hand and individuals or groups of individuals on the other. Lawyers in such practice may work on cases involving discrimination and unfair practices that infringe on rights and liberties such as expression, employment, housing, education, or other entitlements.
  • Criminal
    Criminal law focuses on behaviors that are sanctioned under criminal code and defined as illegal. Prosecutors and District Attorneys sanction illegal behavior, while criminal defense lawyers represent clients accused of criminal activity. Both prosecution and defense professionals deal with issues of individual liberty, basic rights, and responsibilities. In some Common Law countries other than the U.S., and in most Civil Law countries, the roles of a prosecutor (or procurator) and defense lawyer (or advocate) are separated more clearly into different professional specialties.
  • Commercial
    Commercial law deals with the creation of new businesses and the issues that arise as existing businesses interact with the public, other companies, and the government. This area of the law draws on a variety of legal disciplines, including tax law, intellectual property, real estate, sales, employment law, bankruptcy, and others. Business law attorneys specialize in transactional work, meaning they do not represent clients in court. In fact, business lawyers are often hired for the purpose of avoiding future litigation.
  • Competition
    Competition law is law that promotes or seeks to maintain market competition by regulating anti-competitive conduct by companies. Competition law is implemented through Public and Private Enforcement. It has three main elements including, prohibiting agreements or practices that restrict free trading and competition between business, banning abusive behavior by a firm dominating a market, or anti-competitive practices that tend to lead to such a dominant position and finally supervising the mergers and acquisitions of large corporations.
  • Corporate and M&A
    Corporate law is central to every modern economy, whether developed or developing. Internationalization and globalization of economic activity make corporate law and mergers and acquisitions issues central to the practice of business law. Mergers and acquisitions (abbreviated M&A) are dealing with the buying, selling, dividing and combining of different companies and similar entities that can help an enterprise grow rapidly in its sector or location of origin, or a new field or new location, without creating a subsidiary, other child entity or using a joint venture. Mergers and acquisitions activity can be defined as a type of restructuring in that they result in some entity reorganization with the aim to provide growth or positive value.
  • Corporate and regulatory investigations
    Businesses today face an increasingly complex framework of established and evolving legislation and civil, criminal and regulatory risk. Regulators worldwide have stepped up their scrutiny of corporations’ domestic and overseas operations and business development efforts, with an invigorated focus on bribery, kickbacks, anti-competitive behavior and “pay-to-play” schemes involving governments.
  • Employment
    Employment law is concerned with the relations between workers and their employers on matters ranging from wages and compensation, through harassment, to discrimination based on gender, disability, or age.

  • Hedge funds
    A hedge fund attorney holds a responsible position in the field of investments. When a hedge fund is created and investors are found, it is the attorney's job to ensure that it is meeting all of the legal requirements by the board governing those transactions. This job requires the lawyer to understand the rapidly changing regulations, to review paperwork, to advise traders on the legality of specific actions and to represent the investment firm in court.

  • IP (Intellectual Property)
    Intellectual property law deals with the rules for securing and enforcing legal rights to inventions, designs, and artistic works. Just as the law protects ownership of personal property and real estate, so too does it protect the exclusive control of intangible assets. The purpose of these laws is to give an incentive for people to develop creative works that benefit society, by ensuring they can profit from their works without fear of misappropriation by others.

They help structure information technology transactions in a way that maximizes the client’s economic benefit while ensuring regulatory compliance. A great deal of emphasis is also placed on anticipating potential sources of dispute between the parties to a transaction, and crafting agreements that address these concerns, thereby reducing the risk of litigation.
  • Litigation and Dispute Resolution
    Litigation law refers to the rules and practices involved in resolving disputes in the court system. The term is often associated with tort cases, but litigation can come about in all kinds of cases, from contested divorces, to eviction proceedings.
    Dispute Resolution is a term used to describe several different methods of resolving legal disputes without going to court. The rising cost of litigation is making traditional lawsuits impractical for many individuals and businesses. If you are looking to cut short the litigation process, ADR may be the answer. But regardless of the type of ADR proceeding you are contemplating, you need independent legal advice to protect your interests.
  • Maritime Law
    Maritime law regulates economic transactions and property disputes involving marine trade, sailors, navigation, or land-based activity that is maritime in nature.

In other words, LLP is an entity that allows its members to take an active role in the business of the partnership without exposing them to personal liability for actions of other partners, except to the extent of their investment in the LLP

  • Restructuring and insolvency
    Insolvency law governs the position of businesses and individuals who are in financial difficulties and unable to repay their debts as they become due. Such a situation may lead to insolvency proceedings, in which legal action is taken against the insolvent entity and assets may be liquidated to pay off outstanding debts. Before a company or individual gets involved in insolvency proceedings, they will probably be involved in a restructuring or an out-of-court arrangement with creditors to work out alternative repayment schedules.
  • Tax
    Tax law is a dynamic field that deals with domestic and international transactions. Because of the frequent modifications to local, state, and federal codes and the complexity of fiscal policy that guides these changes, experts in tax law engage in continuous education at greater rates than in many other fields of law. Apart from ensuring the legality of the levies on economic transactions, tax lawyers help clients reduce fiscal liabilities.
