United Kingdom - McDermott Will & Emery

United Kingdom


As a nexus of international trade and finance, London is a focal point for businesses launching strategic initiatives and investments around the world. Parties to international commercial and financial transactions often choose English law and jurisdiction to govern deals and disputes.

From our office in the heart of the City, we offer broad-based legal services tailored to London’s role as an international centre. We are unique among US law firms in London, as virtually all of our lawyers are UK-qualified. Many of our clients’ businesses and interests are global in scope, and they rely on our ability to handle English law matters in Africa, Asia and other international markets. We also work seamlessly with the Firm’s European offices on pan-European matters.
