Our London office, which practiced as Nicholson Graham & Jones in the heart of the City from 1858, combined with Kirkpatrick & Lockhart on January 1, 2005. Our principal practice areas in London include corporate finance, real estate, finance, investment management, construction, tax, insurance coverage, intellectual property, technology, employment, competition and dispute resolution.

Our corporate finance group handles a wide range of transactions from start-ups to the largest and most complex transactions.  We are involved in all aspects of fund raising, whether in the form of debt or equity, for institutions, as well as for companies and management.  The group is dedicated to providing focused, cutting-edge legal advice to ensure that transactions are completed on time, on the right terms and at a sensible cost. We have extensive experience advising on all aspects of M&A transactions as well as on corporate finance deals on both the full list and the AIM market.  In addition, our investment management practice provides a full-range of transactional and regulatory services with respect to registered and unregistered funds, broker-dealers, investment advisers and derivatives. Our tax group participates in structuring tax-efficient approaches to client transactions.

Our real estate group, recognized as one of the leading advisers in the U.K. property sector, offers a comprehensive and integrated portfolio of legal services.  We have played a significant role in some of the largest and most complex property deals of recent times.  The group has a wealth of experience covering not only mainstream property work, both transactional and advisory, but also strategic and practical advice on corporate and joint venture aspects, financing, tax structures, construction issues (contentious and non-contentious), planning and environmental issues, and dispute resolution.

Our finance group has a widely acknowledged excellent reputation for its advice to banks and borrowers on all aspects of mainstream lending, structured finance and commercial real estate financing.  Our work ranges from advising on straightforward bilateral and syndicated facilities to transactions involving highly complex vehicles, structures, and financing techniques.

The construction and engineering group in the London office is at the forefront in delivering up-to-the-minute legal and strategic advice.  Our clients include national governments and local authorities, international property developers, major contractors, global construction organizations, individual manufacturers, insurance companies, investment management groups, and commercial enterprises of every description.  Our work also includes PFI/PPP projects, for both the public and private sectors and many of the largest investment groups, in which we provide high-caliber legal advice in our role as appointed advisers to their investment and contracting teams.

Our IP, technology and sport practice group is experienced in working on a wide range of commercial, regulatory and intellectual property matters, particularly in the technology, media, sport and gambling sectors. In the technology sector, we advise a wide spectrum of technology vendors and their customers on procurement, licensing and outsourcing issues, encompassing open source software, cloud computing, and traditional software deployment models. We also have broad experience advising e-commerce providers, including on data protection and consumer law issues. In the media sector, we advise clients on a range content production, licensing, protection and enforcement, and on media regulation. The group has a well-deserved market leading reputation in sport and gambling-related matters, including taking a key role in many high-value sports media rights and sponsorship transactions and advising leading online gambling operators on multi-jurisdictional commercial, licensing and regulatory matters. We also advise our clients on intellectual property issues including trademarks and passing-off, copyright, database rights, merchandizing rights, technology transfer, IP licensing and enforcement, domain name disputes and taking action against cybersquatters.

Our dispute resolution group has established an enviable reputation in dealing with all aspects of domestic and international litigation and arbitration.   The group has a designated international arbitration team which advises individuals, corporations and States on significant arbitration disputes in the world's key arbitration centers.  Our insurance coverage lawyers have extensive experience in presenting insurance coverage claims on behalf of corporations, funds and banks in the London Insurance Market and beyond.  The group also has extensive expertise in advising corporate clients on regulatory investigations and court proceedings or enquiries, including allegations of criminal behavior.   Areas of particular expertise include financial services, travel and leisure, sport, health and safety and construction.  

The office advises on domestic UK and international matters including all aspects of EU regulation and competition.
