Introduction

There’s no secret to our growth over recent years to become a £154m+ turnover firm. Clients, whether individuals or organisations, love working with Shoosmiths people because of the way we work and the results we consistently deliver for them.

You don’t have to take our word for it, many of our clients are happy to talk on our behalf – we’ve never been ones for banging our own drum.

Our commercial client list speaks volumes for the quality of our lawyers and the experience they provide; from Mercedes-Benz, Octopus Ventures and Travelodge to property developers and some of the UK’s largest banks, we work with a growing number of the FTSE 250 and some of the world’s most exciting and ambitious growth businesses.

We work to a simple formula: a can do ethos, values that are much more than words on paper, and the agility to find the best way for each individual client – whether that’s ways of working, pricing structures or just innovative ideas that make a real commercial difference.

Evidencing independent recognition of our national teams’ legal expertise, Shoosmiths is currently ranked 6th by number of rankings in any tier across all work streams nationally – by The Legal 500 Directory UK 2020.

For me it’s all about living up to Shoosmiths’ values and how we treat people: both our own people and our clients. Having diversity at the forefront of the agenda is important because it is absolutely the right thing to do for our values and commercially the only thing to do.” Peter Duff, Chairman.

Pensions:

Our team of pension lawyers is well-established, operating nationally over several locations. We advise clients on a broad mix of business pension matters ranging from advice on benefit queries to major projects such as scheme wind-ups. Although many pension schemes can face similar problems and concerns, we recognise that every corporate pension scheme is unique and pride ourselves on providing tailored and practical advice.

Our advice combines sound legal analysis with an understanding of the factual background. Whether advising the trustees or the scheme sponsor, we strive to provide workable solutions for you. We do not want to provide you with a thesis; we want to provide you with a practical recommendation.

Real estate:

With one of the largest multi-disciplinary real estate practices in the UK, Shoosmiths brings leading insight and expertise to any property transaction or dispute, regardless of size or complexity, ensuring a highly-skilled and commercial approach that goes beyond simply advising on ‘the law’. It’s not just what we do, though. It’s also how we do it.

Shoosmiths delivers national solutions supplemented with local knowledge, allowing us to bring the best of both worlds to our clients’ transactions. With 13 locations across the UK, our knowledge of our cities and regions, as well as the connections we have in the local markets and sectors, means we can support our clients in a more intimate way, which factors in the nuances of those markets. Delivering real estate projects which help shape the landscape and communities in which we live and work is a genuine motivator for our lawyers and at the heart of Shoosmiths’ real estate offering.

Compliance, regulatory and risk:

Our specialist regulatory, criminal and compliance lawyers have acted in some of the UK’s most complex and difficult cases. If an allegation is made against you or your business or you find you have breached regulations or compliance requirements we offer a skilled, dedicated team of specialists available to guide you through the often complex legal regime from start to finish. We will work with you to provide the advice and support required to protect you, your business, management and employees.

Tax:

Shoosmiths’ tax team provide pragmatic, commercial tax advice, whether on bespoke tax structures or otherwise. We work closely with a broad range of clients, from start-ups and mature private companies to FTSE 250 companies. We have a unique offering of being able to offer high-quality EIS, VCT and corporate advice all under one roof. That, combined with a brilliant team of talented people working for clients across the UK, means we are now a real force to be reckoned with in the VC market.

Personal Advisory Services:

Not only do we take care of conveyancing, wills and probate, tax and trusts, issues relating to relationships and serious accidents but we also provide additional services to help you and your family look after the things that are important to you including Disputed wills & trusts, Court of Protection, Residential landlord matters and SEN & EHCP disputes. We have some of the best experts in their fields working collaboratively across offices and teams to provide you with legal advice on the issues that matter to you most.

What makes us different?

We offer clients strength and depth in all the core disciplines, together with key specialisms and a range of sector strengths. What sets us apart is the way we deliver those services – clients tell us that we get the “people bit” right, never take a client for granted, and invest in the relationships which are at the heart of great service.

Diversity and Inclusion

At Shoosmiths, we are building a diverse workforce that reflects all backgrounds and talents, and a workplace that is supportive and inclusive, recognises and nurtures talent, and has a strong sense of community between colleagues.

We pride ourselves on not being overly hierarchical and pretentious; we want Shoosmiths to be a place where you can be yourself and do your best work. We also understand what this means; maintaining a positive, open culture, understanding the impact that work has on home life and vice versa, and promoting physical and mental health.

Communication, consistency, and collaboration are very much the Shoosmiths way of achieving results; this applies to our diversity and inclusion ambitions as well. In practice this means that we consult with our colleagues on initiatives, e.g. through working groups, networks, and employee surveys, seek to maintain a consistent employee experience across Shoosmiths’ offices, and work closely with clients to ensure we meet their needs and identify areas of mutual interest.

We believe talent can come from anywhere, so we actively support initiatives that attract and support people into the legal profession who may not traditionally have had access. We work with external organisations to ensure we are reaching the widest audience possible, as well as on initiatives which contribute to our inclusive working environment.

Global Reach

Our clients are global and so are we. As an independent UK law firm we use our extensive relationships with other leading independent law firms around the world to provide a seamless service to help our clients solve any issue in any jurisdiction in the world.  We help businesses set up and grow in the UK including assistance with obtaining VAT registration and bank accounts, advice on immigration for employees coming into the UK, terms and condition of trade, intellectual property, tax and leases of office or warehouse space.

Through our relationships with the World Services Group and International Bar Association we can locate the right lawyer with the right expertise to provide pragmatic and cost-effective advice in whatever language is suitable.  Not only do we help businesses set up and grow in the UK, we are also experienced in handling cross-border M&A and joint ventures, acting for corporates, institutions and funders of all kinds in their inward investment strategies and transactions.  This is complemented by our dispute resolution team who are experts in multi-jurisdictional litigation and international arbitration.

Doing business around the world has become increasingly more difficult

Whilst there is a global economy inter-connected by technology there are also trade barriers.  Companies have grown in a global environment and benefited from entering new markets where their products or services have been attractive to local businesses and consumers alike.  However further growth has slowed due to trade tensions, Brexit and erosion of business and consumer confidence.  There will always be issues affecting global trade and our teams are on hand to help companies and individuals navigate the way through them.  We help overseas businesses set up and grow in the UK including assistance with obtaining VAT registration and bank accounts, advice on immigration for employees coming into the UK, terms and condition of trade, intellectual property, health & safety and other regulations, tax and leases of office or warehouse space.

Expansions beyond the UK

We also assist UK businesses with their expansion strategies outside of the UK.  We work closely with the Department for International Trade (DIT) to identify the best areas or marketplaces to sell their products, offer advice on exporting, franchising, licensing or setting up a company in an overseas jurisdiction.
