About Our London Office

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, employment and financial regulation. We advise clients on the most complex matters that require innovative solutions involving both domestic U.K. and multijurisdictional law.

Since opening our London office in 1988, Skadden has established itself as a major player in the London legal market.

The firm offers a fully integrated U.K., European and U.S. practice operating from our London base and composed of some of London’s top-ranked lawyers.

Our clients, which we counsel on cross-border European and global matters, include major corporates, financial institutions and governments. Skadden’s global platform allows our lawyers in London to quickly marshall relevant experience across practices and offices.

More than two-thirds of our London partners are recommended as leaders in their field in Chambers UK, and the firm is highly regarded in each of its practice areas. Skadden is regularly ranked highly for “legal expertise” in the Financial Times European “Innovative Lawyers” report.
