The US practice, centred in Boston, is our most commercially active hub with significant clients. Our legal expertise across business and private client teams is fully utilised. The litigious approach adopted by American colleagues means that our advice must be a match to the combative nature of their market. With long standing clients in the region, Robert Rice and Natalie Minott lead this practice.
We have worked with clients on US-related projects for two decades and in 2016 began to formalise our US network centering on Boston. Since then we have worked with many British companies who wanted to establish themselves in the United States or dealt with their US legal issues.
We have a substantial network in Boston, calling on lawyers from many different firms depending on the skill set our client needs, whether corporate law, media law, employment law or other specialisms. We take great care to find the right lawyer for the job, whether for high-end capital markets work worth billions, or lawyers in the suburbs of the city able to write your will.
