- Banking and Financial Services
- Media and Technology
- Retail and Leisure
- Property, Infrastructure and Construction
Clients within these focus sectors include; Santander, Silvergate Media and Ministry of Sound.
To support the journey of growth, the firm has continued to invest in people with six lateral hires over the past 12 months and two partner and two director promotions from 1 May 2016. Total headcount across the firm's six offices is expected to exceed 500 in the next 12 months.
Managing Partner, John Westwell, recently highlighted by trade publication The Lawyer as one of their "Hot 100" legal professionals in 2016, said; "The last five years have seen excellent growth and last year was no exception. We have invested heavily across the business and will build on these strong foundations by continuing to put clients at the heart of our business and developing the right talent."
