We are the only international law firm focused on successful individuals and private capital, working closely with founders, investors and family offices.

It makes for a fascinating and challenging practice.

To meet their unique needs we are exceptionally collaborative, working together across teams and time zones. We are agile, focusing on strategy rather than rigid ideas and traditional hierarchy. It is a truly flexible working culture that puts people first. Join us to be part of a team that is always looking to the future. Where initiative, big ideas and bold moves are always encouraged.
