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.
With around 300 staff, 206 lawyers and 58 partners we advise across 12 sectors and 18 service lines. 60% of our partners are ranked in the leading legal directories Chambers and Partners and Legal 500.
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.
"As an employer we place an unusually high emphasis on workplace engagement; for eight years running the firm has been listed in the Sunday Times Best Companies to Work For listing, one of only a handful of law firms to make that index.We are committed to valuing and promoting diversity in all areas of employment and service delivery, and support current initiatives to increase diversity and social mobility in the legal profession. Lewis Silkin is always interested in hearing from talented lawyers and professional support staff."
