We have a significant international practice across all specialisations, reflecting the international scope of many of our clients in the commercial and charity worlds.

Our international work has allowed us to develop many tried and tested legal contacts all over the world.

In addition, we are founding members of two networks of lawyers: The Parlex Group and the AntiTrust Alliance.

The Parlex Group

Through our membership of the The Parlex Group, we are able to offer our clients the confidence that any legal matter requiring advice in a different jurisdiction will be handled by lawyers we know and trust.

The Parlex Group was established by Bates Wells & Braithwaite in 1971. Its aim is to ensure that the clients of each member firm have instant access to excellent professional advice throughout the European Economic Area and beyond.

From its inception, Parlex has been both a personal and a professional association and strong ties of friendship and trust have developed over many years. These ties are strengthened by a series of exchanges of junior lawyers between firms.

There are now member law firms in 22 European countries and associate members in China, Israel, Malaysia and the USA. 

The AntiTrust Alliance

We are founding members of this pioneering collaboration between European law firms specialising in competition law. The aim of the network is to ensure that our clients have specialist advice in every relevant jurisdiction, rivalling the capabilities of the largest of international law firms in handling European competition law.
