The value of the LawExchange International network

It is very easy to find a law firm in another country. However, nothing beats the reassurance of a relationship with a lawyer we know and trust when a client needs urgent advice in another jurisdiction. This is what our membership of LEI gives us. You can find out more about Law Exchange International here.

We maintain our relationships with LEI members by attending regional and global conferences throughout the year. We also share professional updates and best practices through specialist Practice Groups in different areas of law.

It is through this close connection that, when a client needs legal advice in another jurisdiction, we can refer them to a lawyer we know personally. It means we can ensure continuity and quality of the services which our clients expect.

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

Navigating the complexities of B2B relationships requires a lawyer who truly understands the intricacies involved. That’s exactly what I found in Nicolas Groffman. 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.
