At Downs, we act for many businesses outside of the UK who need help understanding and applying English law. We also advise clients here in the UK who need international legal advice, often through our network of trusted foreign law firms.
Now, more than ever, businesses need help dealing with the challenging issues that arise in international trade, from Brexit to understanding local laws. Our experienced International Group responds quickly to our clients’ international legal services needs. The Group, which includes lawyers from our key practice areas, shares a wealth of industry knowledge and expertise. As a result, we can better support our clients wherever they are in the world.
Downs also provides notarial services for international business, including the authentication of documents to operate abroad and to comply with the foreign legal requirements (such as apostiles).
A number of our lawyers speak foreign languages, from French to fluent Japanese.
