London operates as the business and finance hub of Europe with over 16,000 national and international companies based in the City, including companies from more than 60 different countries. Many of these are among the world's leading corporations and financial institutions. The London Stock Exchange's Main Market is recognised as the most prominent international exchange in the world, while the Alternative Investment Market has experienced phenomenal growth in the past few years. London's international outlook and diversity makes it the ideal backdrop for business.
Mayer Brown's culture reflects this thriving international environment with lawyers in the heart of the City. The London office provides a full service presence working together with its US, European, and Asian teams to provide clients with complete representation on local and multi-jurisdictional matters alike. While our lawyers primarily practise English law, many are also qualified in the United States and other jurisdictions.
Our lawyers practise in a wide range of areas including corporate, finance, litigation and dispute resolution, real estate, insurance and reinsurance, pensions and employment, competition and trade, tax, intellectual property, and information technology. We understand the challenges faced by businesses and tailor our advice accordingly to help each client achieve its goals. Clients include many of the FTSE and Fortune 500 companies from the worlds of banking, insurance, communications, industrials, energy, construction, professional services, media, pharmaceuticals, chemicals, and mining.
Mayer Brown takes pro bono work and social responsibility seriously. In the London office, more than a quarter of our people are involved in pro bono and community service projects over the course of any year, and we have been recognised locally and internationally for our achievements in this area. In line with our global commitment to sustainability, we have objectives and targets in four key areas:
- Managing our Climate Change Impacts
- Resource Consumption
- Waste Management
- Engagement with Stakeholders
