Key contact

Nicolas Groffman

If you’re doing business with anyone outside the UK, I’m the person to speak with to make it happen easily and reduce the risk for your business. I’m passionate about helping people from different cultures work together to achieve something greater than would have been possible by themselves.

Our international experience

From commercial agreements to navigating complicated employment and immigration law, we pride ourselves on our practical and commercial approach. We handle a range of international issues for businesses of all kinds, involving real estate, restructuring and insolvency, employment and staff migration, intellectual property and dispute resolution.

We also work with private members of the international community who have legal issues in the UK. We have a reputation for being open and honest about any potential risk involved – and for helping you achieve an effective resolution.

Our team includes lawyers qualified to practice in multiple countries around the world, including Australia, the US, China, Canada and India.

A world of international expertise

Our relationships with the people and institutions that might affect you are tried and tested worldwide. Our legal, commercial and government connections within those areas are extensive – we work with individuals that we’ve known personally for years.

Beyond our regions of specialist expertise, we are a member of LawExchange International, which means we have access to the expertise of 37 independent law firms across five continents and 31 countries.

Who we work with internationally

We’ve helped all sorts of companies to get established around the world, from recruitment companies and publishing businesses to large international corporations and household-name sports brands. For organisations looking to expand their scope outside the UK, we’ve assisted everyone from helmet manufacturers to the University of Gloucestershire.

Hear what our clients say about us

HCR has become our go-to law firm for TV and media work. We recently needed a production arrangement with a multinational mass media and entertainment conglomerate. We had issues across the UK and EU; the arrangements are complicated but Nicolas Groffman and Raj Pahuja found ways to simplify the process and then isolate key issues for negotiation. Their technical knowledge and diligence enabled them to discuss practical issues with the television production teams on equal terms, which speeded up the project. They are brilliant.

 

Go-to law firm for TV and media work

The relationship with us goes back a long way, and the service HCR provides in the more ‘traditional’ areas such as employment and education remains first-rate. But what has been especially pleasing is the way that, as our ambitions and vision have broadened, so too has HCR’s ability to support us on our journey. Of course I’m thinking in particular about our international plans and discussions – it’s no exaggeration to say that we couldn’t have come as far as we have without your tremendous support, expertise and sage advice. Thanks.

 

Client An Independent School

His exceptional skills in contract drafting, negotiation, and cross-border legal advice surpassed my expectations. With meticulous attention to detail and effective communication, he’s the go-to lawyer for any business seeking expert legal advice.
