About this office:
Mishcon de Reya is a law firm with offices in London and New York. Founded by Victor Mishcon in a one-room office in Brixton in 1937, we now employ more than 500 people, with over 300 lawyers offering a wide range of legal services to companies and individuals.
In every area of the law that we operate, Mishcon de Reya prides itself in providing a best in class service to its clients. Specifically we offer the following legal services: corporate; dispute resolution; employment; family; private client; and real estate. An entrepreneurial spirit - where candour and involvement are key - characterises our ability to develop and execute the strategies required to achieve our clients' goals in all these areas.
We are an independent firm with an international footprint that extends far beyond our offices in London and New York. A large part of our business is advising on multi-jurisdictional transactions and disputes; established links with overseas practices help serve the needs of our increasingly international client base.
Our clients are dynamic and sophisticated and we reflect that in our belief in challenging the conventional or accepted ways of working. We like to solve problems quickly. We fiercely guard our clients' interests, recognising the significant nexus between business affairs and personal affairs and the ways in which this affects our clients.
We appreciate the privilege of sitting alongside our clients as a trusted advisor. Building strong personal connections to our clients and their businesses is important to us. It is for these reasons we say 'It's business. But it's personal'.
The privilege of sitting alongside our clients as their trusted advisor is something we value highly. We believe that our client relationships should extend beyond the simple facilitation of a transaction, to encompass the role of business advisor, and being part of a deal-making team.
Disputes are, by their very nature, distracting and, for most of us, stressful. The obvious solution is to solve them as quickly as possible. The law can be a complex beast and otherwise rational people can be consumed by emotion in the midst of a dispute.
Our approach is simple: give clear, dispassionate advice from the start. Part of this common sense thinking is addressing anxiety about costs, which is why we've developed a unique funding and insurance package to keep risk to a minimum.
Dealing with an individual, a family business or a family office requires an understanding that sometimes the seemingly small things can be the most critical. We offer all the legal services an individual may need, ranging from asset protection to immigration and from probate and succession to reputation management.
Our Real Estate Group provides specialist practices that enable us to offer clients a genuine one-stop shop for property services. Our clients benefit from the close relationship between the contentious and non-contentious experts in the practice. From acquisition and planning, to construction and disposal through to commercial and residential property. Beyond this we involve the Firm's other specialist departments and can facilitate deals by bringing people, financial investment and opportunities together via our extensive network of contacts.
