United Kingdom


The UK is at the heart of the global economy, with English law underpinning international commerce and London arguably the world's leading financial centre.

An important trading partner for many countries, particularly the United States, the UK also serves as an entrance to the largest single market in the world - Europe and its 500 million consumers.

Gowling WLG's UK lawyers have outstanding legal expertise plus, crucially, the in-depth market knowledge our clients need to succeed.

This insight you receive will be backed up by people with a resolute focus on commercial results. Our dual-centre business model - with bases in London and Birmingham, the UK's second city - means we deliver this first-class legal advice in a flexible and cost-effective manner.

Clients in London, the UK and worldwide can be sure that whatever the deal, dispute or project, our lawyers are ideally placed to advise.

Gowling WLG is home to one of the UK's largest real estate practices: a broad-based practice acting for institutions, investors, developers and occupiers. We're also the number one AIM firm by market capitalisation and are top-rated for our investment funds, pensions and private capital work.

In dispute resolution, we have core strengths in intellectual property, construction, commercial litigation and international disputes, particularly in the areas of fraud/asset tracing, contentious trusts and insurance/reinsurance.

Making a real connection with our people and clients, we use commercial and innovative thinking to provide the legal solutions our clients need to thrive and prosper, wherever they are in the world.
