Who we are

The smartest business solutions come when we work together – international but operating as one integrated team

A law firm that acts as your business partner and works with you, not for you.

We focus on four highly regulated sectors – using our specialist skills to understand your business, and the forces at play around it. All grounded in exceptional knowledge of the legal detail.

This is how we consistently deliver smarter, more efficient ways to tackle our clients’ most complex challenges.

Our story

We were founded in 1896 by twins Edward and Percy Simmons. Since then we’ve never stopped learning, growing and adapting. All with the goal of delivering smarter solutions for our clients’ most complex challenges.

Corporate responsibility

For us, corporate responsibility is all about opening up access. Access to careers for people from diverse backgrounds, to legal advice for those on low incomes, and to funding for charitable causes.

Our partners lead from the front on our CR programme, which includes pro bono work, access to justice, our charitable foundation, and environmental initiatives. This partner-level support gives everyone at the firm the opportunity to contribute to these vital programmes
