Shoosmiths LLP

Shoosmiths LLP is unusual among its UK law firm peer group for steering its path to a £128million turnover largely through organic growth, rather than by mega-merger.

Shoosmiths scores well in terms of innovation: this was one of the first UK law firm to publish its Gender Pay Gap, introduce flexible ‘resource solutions’ suite for clients, and develop data capture software and augmented intelligence models for clients.

The firm views itself as a service business and its lawyers and front line staff are genuinely encouraged to make a difference in a way that is relevant to each client.

Whilst its own agile office network is centred in the UK (including Scotland and Northern Ireland), Shoosmiths regularly works with law firms with a similarly client-focused outlook in the global jurisdictions where our clients do business – “where they go, we go”.

National awards from the last 12 months include: Legal Business National/Regional Firm of the Year 2018; EG Legal Team of the Year (2018); and Winner of the Legal 500 Corporate & Commercial Specialism of the year (Venture Capital).
