Locke Lord's London office not only provides a full service offering in the UK but also is a gateway for the Firm's international work in Europe, the Middle East, Africa and Asia, and is home to a leading team of lawyers dedicated to providing the best service possible to clients around the world.
Having established a presence in London decades ago, Locke Lord opened a much larger office in early 2012, as part of the Firm's strategic expansion, assembling an on-the-ground team that includes lawyers with many years of experience. From major corporations and financial institutions to individuals and overseas-based investors, our clients trust the Firm's strong capabilities and excellent representation in the areas of banking and finance, restructuring and insolvency, capital markets, corporate M&A, general commercial, data centres, dispute resolution, financial services, intellectual property, energy, employment, insurance and reinsurance, and real estate.
As an integral part of Locke Lord's global presence, the London-based lawyers collaborate daily with the wider network of the Firm's colleagues in 18 U.S. cities, Brussels and Hong Kong. Our combination of proactive, barrier-free communication offers clients the best resources available to tackle their issues -- both complex and straightforward. Our strength is understanding the challenges faced by our clients and delivering a tailored solution to meet their individual objectives. In particular, our lawyers employ an entrepreneurial approach to their client relationships. As well as providing sound legal advice and guidance to meet client expectations, they also regularly bring together parties when they believe that such introductions would be beneficial to their clients.
Our London lawyers are recognised by well-regarded law firm ranking organisations, including Chambers UK and the Legal 500, which list them among leaders in their fields. Along with our many London and U.S. clients, Locke Lord's London office also serves clients throughout Europe, Africa and Asia. It is active in the international banking markets. It is also active in the continental European insurance markets in regulatory, litigation, arbitration, claims, underwriting and corporate matters, as well as in insurance and reinsurance matters in the UK and United States.
We are skilled in international arbitrations in a number of industries, including energy. A number of our lawyers are members of the Chartered Institute of Arbitrators and have extensive experience representing clients in international arbitrations in London, Paris, Rotterdam and in other important international arbitration centres.
Locke Lord is committed to doing business responsibly, and volunteer efforts are part of the Firm's mission in London and worldwide. Our lawyers are part of the communities in which they live and work and believe everyone has the right to the best representation possible, without regard to their financial resources. To that end, members of our London office are committed to giving back to their own and other communities by participating in charitable services and pro bono efforts for organisations around the globe.
Locke Lord is a legal partner of Insurtech UK, an alliance aiming to shape the future insurance industry through technology.
