Skadden’s London office advises on mergers and acquisitions, private equity, financings, restructurings and tax matters. We also have extensive experience in the fields of international arbitration and litigation, white collar crime and financial regulation. We advise clients on the most complex matters that require innovative solutions involving both domestic U.K. and multijurisdictional law.


What Makes Skadden Unique?

It can be hard to decide to where to train. There are numerous strong law firms in London, from small boutiques to global full-service firms, many of which promote themselves in similar ways. What makes Skadden different?

David Herlihy

Graduate Recruitment Partner / International Litigation and Arbitration
"We are unique, and we recognize that you are too. We have no “type” here. Skadden began as a scrappy upstart, competing with the older “white shoe” firms in New York. We continue to cherish that outsider culture, and we recognize that diversity makes us stronger. You’ll find an eclectic mix of lawyers, but all of us share a common thread: a desire to innovate, excel and deliver extraordinary client service."

Elizabeth Roberston

Partner / Government Enforcement & White Collar Crime
"For someone starting their career here, I would say Skadden is a place that takes pride in its supportive culture. On that front, as a parent, my advice is that, if you want to have children, don’t delay your personal and family goals. Your career will take care of itself, and you have to take a leap of faith that the business you work for will support you. I truly believe we give our attorneys the platform to do this at Skadden."

Jo Jimenez

Associate / Banking
"What I didn’t appreciate before joining Skadden is the myriad opportunities beyond commercial work the firm would provide me. The stellar pro bono programme has allowed me to develop my skills and engage with the global community in ways I never anticipated. Among other projects, since January 2017 I’ve helped staff the New York Legal Aid Society’s Immigration Hotline, which was created in response to the rise in raids by U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement."
