Administrative & public law
Public law comprises several interlinking practice areas which concern relationships between people and government.
Charities lawyers advising the not-for-profit and social enterprise sector cover wills and trusts to commercial and real estate law.
Clinical negligence lawyers advise on instances of injury or death arising from incorrect or inadequate medical treatment or diagnosis.
Company & commercial
Commercial lawyers focus on trade, from commercial agreements about supply, manufacture and distribution to identifying the best routes to market.
Competition & EU law
Competition and regulatory work includes merger control, regulatory and court proceedings, issues arising from sector-specific regulation and utility procurement issues.
Construction & engineering
Contentious construction work involves the resolution of disputes while non-contentious work involves drafting and negotiating contracts and advising on projects.
In this area of legal practice, clients generally fall into two categories: the rich or famous and the media.
Commercial litigation involves the resolution of disputes in the corporate and commercial sphere.
Employment, pensions & incentives
Employment lawyers work across all areas of employment law, including handling discrimination, staff restructuring and whistleblowing issues.
Issues such as climate change and the need for alternative energy sources make environmental laws more important than ever.
Housing/landlord & tenant
Relationships between the owners and occupiers of properties, both residential and commercial, can be fraught with problems.
Insurance and reinsurance is an integral part of commercial activity throughout the world.
IP barristers advise on issues that range from commercial exploitation and infringement disputes to IP rights in large commercial transactions.
