Seyfarth’s London office serves as a popular regional hub for our clients’ operations in Europe, the Middle East, and Africa (EMEA). As rapid change continues across these regions, our International practice assists clients with practical, commercial legal advice, as well as advising on large multijurisdictional transactions and projects.

The office is continuing to expand and has been privileged to serve a growing list of local and international clients, including banks and multinationals. The firm has developed a strong reputation in the EMEA region for our cutting-edge approach to complex cross-border employment work. To date, the office has handled some of the largest and most complex employment law projects in the world, including a multibillion-euro global restructure in 120 jurisdictions. The team’s attorneys have particular experience regularly assisting companies with large multijurisdictional employment law projects of a strategic, compliance, and transactional nature.

The London office commitment to pro bono has seen it average the highest number of pro bono hours per attorney in the UK, according to the Trustlaw Index of Pro Bono survey, published by The Lawyer in 2016.
