Lewis Silkin is a commercial law firm with offices in the City of London, Cardiff, Oxford and Hong Kong with particular expertise in Real Estate, Litigation, Employment & Incentives; Media, Brands & Technology; and Corporate & Commercial. We are large enough to handle major projects and transactions whilst remaining of a size that ensures that the work we do for clients will be treated with the priority and importance they expect and deserve. We believe we offer excellent service and value for money provided by our lawyers who are friendly, experienced and commercial working across our specialist disciplines to provide a seamless service to clients.
The firm has a friendly style and our clients find us refreshingly easy to deal with. What distinguishes us is a matter of personality. As lawyers, we are notably informal, unstuffy...well human really. We're people people: as committed and professional as any good law firm but perhaps more adept at the interpersonal skills that make relationships work and go on working.
The firm is a member of two global alliances - Ius Laboris, the global alliance of employment law specialist firms and GALA, the Global Advertising Lawyers Alliance.
Employing over 340 staff, including more than 170 legal professionals, we take pride in retaining a unique culture and a fun, less stuffy whilst professional and fast-paced environment.
We value our staff very highly and build our business by empowering high performance and progression. In 2009 the firm was first recognised as one of the Best 100 Companies to work for in the Sunday Times annual league table and has featured in the table in nine years since then.
Whatever your role, we provide you with the support, management and training opportunities you need to reach your full potential and ambitions.
We are proud of the diverse range of people within Lewis Silkin and of our workplace culture that allows individuals to be themselves at work, ensuring we provide the best possible service to our clients
