Sidley’s London office, which opened its doors in 1974, has offered a combined English and U.S. law capability since 1994. Unlike most U.S. law firms in London, the majority of our 130 lawyers are English law qualified. This enables us to deliver a comprehensive range of high-quality legal services that meet the needs of clients conducting business in the UK.
Our team has been involved in many highly complex and pioneering transactions across our principal areas of practice, which include structured finance, M&A, private equity, capital markets, insolvency and restructuring, financial services regulatory, insurance, investment funds and dispute resolution.
Our integrated relationship with the firm’s offices in the United States, Europe and Asia Pacific, and the firm’s emphasis on global practice area groups, gives us an international reach that truly sets us apart.
Our team’s strength has earned us acknowledgement in numerous industry publications, including 12 firm rankings in Chambers UK 2017 and 19 in The Legal 500 UK 2016.
