Freeths is a national law firm. Tracing its origins in the East Midlands back to 1801, the firm has in recent years pursued a dynamic strategy of becoming a pre-eminent regional law firm, with successful offices now established in Birmingham, Bristol, Derby, Leeds, Leicester, Liverpool, London, Manchester, Milton Keynes, Nottingham, Oxford, Sheffield and Stoke. While Freeths is a heavyweight commercial firm, serving a wide variety of corporate and institutional clients, there is also a strong commitment to a broad range of legal services, which includes a substantial private client element. This enables us to give a breadth of experience in training which is not always available in firms of a similar size.

Types of work

The firm covers a wide range of work and is organised into four divisions: real estate and construction, commercial services, private client and personal litigation.
