International

Woodfines is a well established law firm with four offices across the central heartland of England. Geographically, it is ideally placed to access the world-renowned education and research centres of Cambridge and Oxford as well as being centrally located between London and Birmingham.

We have grown steadily in recent years and are now in the top 10% of UK firms in terms of revenue. We are also widely recognised for our expertise by various professional bodies and legal directories

We are able to offer a full package of legal services across all the core commercial law disciplines. In addition, we are able to support employees of client organisations with their individual legal needs, whether that need be for a simple real estate transaction or for more complex family or personal legal matters.

We aim to deliver our services in a refreshingly approachable style. In practice, that means that all our staff are trained to deal with your matter promptly, efficiently and professionally and will communicate advice in clear and plain English without resorting to unnecessary and complicated legal terminology.

We have an international outlook and considerable experience of working with organisations of various sizes that either trade with the UK or have moved into the UK to launch an operating base.

We understand that in some instances our clients require a full range of commercial law support yet need to simplify their communications by channelling them through one senior lawyer. Woodfines can allocate a Client Partner to act as a single point of contact for the various specialists within the firm.

Meeting facilities in London are also available for our international clients. Our network of professional contacts can assist businesses new to the UK in matters of accountancy, finance and real estate.

A number of our staff have foreign language capability. All advice will be communicated in English but we can arrange for translations if necessary. However, we realise that for communication purposes clients do appreciate some capability in their native language. The listing of languages provided below shows that we have members of staff with some linguistic ability in that particular language. It should not be assumed that the firm is widely able to communicate in this language. Inevitably some languages have more speakers than others, but where possible we will make available a member of staff to join the support team for a client.

European Languages

French, German, Portuguese, Spanish, Dutch (Holland), Welsh

Asian African Languages

Gujarati, Punjabi, Afrikaans

We are also able to provide notary public services.
