K&L Gates’ London office is located in the modern iconic premises of One New Change in the heart of the city of London. Our London office has a substantial presence for international, domestic and cross-border advice across a variety of practice areas. Our lawyers draw upon our worldwide resources to deliver legal services on an integrated, global basis.

The primary services provided by our London office include:

Corporate: We have extensive experience in corporate, commercial, M&A and capital markets transactions, both domestically and internationally. We are equally at home advising start-ups or acting for large international corporations.

Real Estate: Our real estate experience covers investment, acquisitions and dispositions, development, construction, project finance, planning and environmental issues, leasing, property management, property holding re-structuring, financing and dispute resolution.

Finance: We advise banks and borrowers on all aspects of mainstream lending, structured finance and commercial real estate financing. We advise on many types of transactions, both nationally and internationally, including acquisitions, project finance, restructuring and insolvency, equity and credit derivatives, property investment and development. We also have a dedicated aviation team with extensive experience representing airlines, financial institutions and leasing companies around the globe in connection with aircraft operating finance and leasing transactions.

Commercial Litigation: Our team has the breadth and depth of experience and the capability to deal with even the most complex and difficult engagements efficiently and cost effectively. We manage cases in the English courts and all major arbitral forums. We are well versed in many methods of alternative dispute resolution. We regularly advise on third-party funding, after-the-event insurance and alternative fee arrangements. We also have a leading international arbitration practice.

Government Enforcement: We handle white-collar defense work and corporate crime matters, and undertake proceedings before regulatory and administrative bodies in diverse fields such as financial services and sport.

Regulatory and Competition: We provide advice on all EU and U.K. competition laws and represent clients’ interests before the European Commission, Office of Fair Trading, Competition Commission, as well as the European and national courts and tribunals. We also advise on regulatory and trade regulation law.

Intellectual Property: We work on a wide range of commercial, regulatory and intellectual property matters, particularly in the technology, sport, consumer products, and gambling sectors. We also have broad experience advising e-commerce providers, including on data protection and consumer law issues. We also advise our clients on intellectual property issues including trademarks, copyright, database rights, merchandizing rights, technology transfer, IP licensing and enforcement, domain names disputes and actions against cybersquatters.

Boardroom Risk: We advise on all aspects of legal, regulatory and compliance risk or any combination of risks that can affect an organization and its board. For example, our lawyers work with clients on matters ranging from fraud and corruption to employment and workplace safety, and from corporate governance to competition issues and cyber risks. We also advise on regulatory and criminal investigations and insurance coverage issues. Our advice covers both domestic and international issues, and falls into two categories: risk mitigation and risk response. Risk mitigation advice includes identifying danger hotspots and helping clients to tackle them, reviewing internal procedures, guidelines or policies, and providing training to teams. Risk response advice includes advice to clients on responding to emergency situations such as dawn raids, environmental incidents, criminal investigations or data breaches, as well as helping to maximize recoveries from insurers which in many instances will cover legal costs.

Investment Management: Advice on the organization and day-to-day operation of a range of investment funds (including parallel and master-feeder structures and funds of funds) and fund managers. Our lawyers are well-versed in the practical, technical and regulatory aspects of organizing and operating fund vehicles and structuring investment managers.

We also practice in the areas of betting and gaming, electoral, employment, tax, fintech, nuclear, oil and gas, payment systems, pension litigation, projects, rail, renewable energy, telecoms and travel.

In the 2017 edition of the U.S. News-Best Lawyers “Best Law Firms” survey, we received National Tier 1 rankings for Banking and Finance Law, Securities-Capital Markets Law, Securitization and Structured Finance Law, Securities Regulation, Public Finance Law, Project Finance Law, Bankruptcy and Creditor Debtor Rights/Insolvency and Reorganization Law, and Derivatives and Futures Law.
