About Addleshaw Goddard LLP

Imagine if...

...your law firm told you your "unfixable" business issue wasn't.
...consistently brought you solutions you didn't see coming.
...offered answers, not just options.

Now imagine if your law firm is Addleshaw Goddard.
Why put us on your next beauty parade? Three reasons

1) We never lose sight of the results you need; 2) we're creative thinkers; and 3) we deliver a service that clients return to time and again. Many have been with us for 20 years, one for over 150. They range from start-ups to more than 40 FTSE 100 companies. Every day, we help them resolve problems holding back business growth. So we understand the pressure to perform in the most challenging conditions.
Minimum Fuss. Maximum Results.

Projects, deals and disputes can be exhausting as well as exhilarating. So we do everything in our power to make your life easier. From being there when you need us to solving pivotal problems with imaginative solutions. And we'll always give you an opinion you can act on. If we think you should settle, we say settle. Fight, we say fight. Sign the contract? Or walk away? We'll tell you. It's an approach that has worked for clients as diverse as Volkswagen, The Oman Investment Corporation and David Bowie. They came to us to get things done. Minimum fuss. Maximum results.
