With more than 1,200 lawyers and legal practitioners across a worldwide network of 28 offices, Bird & Bird specialises in delivering expertise across a full range of legal services. Our specialisms include advising on commercial, corporate, EU and competition, intellectual property, dispute resolution, tax, employment, finance and real estate matters.
The key to our success is our constantly evolving sector-focused approach. Our clients build their businesses on technology and intangible assets, and operate in regulated markets. To better meet their needs we have developed deep industry understanding of key sectors, including aviation and defence, energy & utilities, financial services, food and beverage, healthcare, life sciences, media and sport.
As our clients' businesses change, so does ours: the recent formation of our dedicated technology and communications sector group was a direct result of client listening, and successfully pre-empting industry change.
Bird & Bird operates as one truly international partnership: our goals, accounting and profit pool are all shared, as is our commitment to providing our clients advice from the right lawyers, in the right locations. Our open and flexible business culture allows us to configure ourselves to respond as quickly and effectively as possible to the commercial pressures faced by our clients. Our priority is providing excellent client service; however they themselves define excellence.
