Read about Shooshmiths:-

There's no secret to our growth over recent years to become a £137m+ turnover firm. Clients, whether individuals or organisations, love working with Shoosmiths people because of the way we work and the results we consistently deliver for them.

You don't have to take our word for it, many of our clients are happy to talk on our behalf - we've never been ones for banging our own drum.

Our commercial client list speaks volumes for the quality of our lawyers and the experience they provide; from Mercedes-Benz, Octopus Ventures and Travelodge to property developers and some of the UK's largest banks, we work with a growing number of the FTSE 250 and some of the world's most exciting and ambitious growth businesses.

We work to a simple formula: a can do ethos, values that are much more than words on paper, and the agility to find the best way for each individual client - whether that's ways of working, pricing structures or just innovative ideas that make a real commercial difference.

Evidencing independent recognition of our national teams' legal expertise, Shoosmiths is currently ranked 6th by number of rankings in any tier across all work streams nationally - by the Legal 500 Directory UK 2020.

For me it's all about living up to Shoosmiths' values and how we treat people: both our own people and our clients. Having diversity at the forefront of the agenda is important because it is absolutely the right thing to do for our values and commercially the only thing to do.
Peter Duff, Chairman

Our responsibility

We are committed to corporate responsibility; it forms part of our business plan, and in turn shapes our strategic goals. We pride ourselves on not being overly hierarchical and pretentious; we want Shoosmiths to be a place where you can be yourself and do your best work - learn more about our approach to diversity & inclusion.

Shoosmiths commented "those involved in the public sector, be they local authorities, developers or other intermediaries, must address a particular set of challenges and complexities. Few other sectors must contend with the fiscal restrictions imposed by public sector budget cuts or the onerous level of bureaucracy, 'red tape' and regulation (including local regulations). As one of the largest real estate teams in the country (over 285 legal advisers), we regularly advise local authorities, developers and other interested parties on the full spectrum of local government issues, including planning, procurement and environmental issues, housing, CPO, financing as well as intellectual property and copyright advice.

What sets us apart is our national reach and our ability to blend local knowledge with decades of collective experience working within, as well as acting for and advising, local government particularly on regeneration"
