Much has been made of the number of foreign investors looking to take advantage of the opportunities presented by the economic problems suffered by the UK in recent times, but the recently poor performance of Sterling on the foreign exchange markets is boosting business confidence as exports from the UK look more attractive to those buying from abroad.
Inward investment into the UK is also a distinct specialisation at SGH Martineau with plenty of advice on behalf of clients operating in the UK but whose headquarters are abroad. This ensures we have to adapt our service to suit the varying demands of an increasingly international client base and keep our communications concise, accurate and always in terms the client will easily understand regardless of their grasp of the intricacies of English language and English law.
Our membership of Multilaw and State Law Resources enables us to advise clients with confidence in jurisdictions beyond these shores, but certain markets require specialist knowledge beyond straightforward legal advice. Our understanding of the increasingly international character of the energy sector is recognised with our membership of the Association of European Energy Consultants (AEEC), a network of highly regarded independent law firms from across Europe boasting leading energy law specialists. We are also a member of Legus, an international association of law firms across six continents.
We also have a close alliance with Loynton & Co, a Chinese law firm based in the Midlands. Click here for our dedicated China page.
