Legal Market Overview
The large commercial law firms in Wales are spread along the M4 corridor, from Newport in the east to Swansea in the west, with Cardiff the main commercial hub. Eversheds Sutherland (International) LLP remains the largest outfit based in Wales, while Blake Morgan LLP has strong roots in the country on the back of the 2014 merger of Cardiff’s Morgan Cole and Blake Lapthorne. While the majority of law firms in Wales are local entities, a number of English firms, including Clarke Willmott LLP, Lewis Silkin LLP and Ince have recently set up offices in the capital, while Hugh James and Geldards LLP are among the most well-established national firms.
