We are a UK firm with 58 partners and a staff of around 300, with offices in London, Oxford, Cardiff and Hong Kong.
Lewis Silkin is a law firm recognised by clients and industry alike as being distinct:
for our deep understanding, insight and advice to creative, innovative and brand-focused businesses;
for our market-leading international practice in employment, immigration and reward; and
for delivering pragmatic, commercial advice in a refreshingly human way.
We work with our clients as their trusted partner, helping them meet challenges and capitalise on opportunities. We do so with focus and insight - cutting through the clutter to what really matters.
We focus on six key sectors including Technology, where our team provides down-to-earth, sensible and cost-effective advice to the technology business sector. For some years we have had market-leading expertise in advertising technology and software (including cloud and free and open source software). This has now been bolstered by other specialisms, including an established end-to-end corporate finance practice acting for founders, companies and investors in technology based businesses. Our clients range from entrepreneurs, start-up companies and their financiers and investors in technology based businesses, to large multi-nationals and internationally-known technology names.
We provide a very wide range of legal services to technology companies. Typically this has been focused on our commercial, corporate, intellectual property and employment matters, and technology-based dispute resolution work. One of our marketing leading practices is Data Protection and Privacy, where we act for clients ranging from owner managed businesses to companies who have a global presence, who operate in a diverse range of sectors including technology, retail, professional services, engineering, sport and leisure and the marcomms sector.
