Underwood & Co offer the full array of services expected from a multidisciplinary commercial law firm to a wide range of business and private clients both in the UK and abroad.
What sets us apart from the crowd is our bespoke approach. We believe that less is more and our small but specialised team allows us to provide every client, no matter their size, with the personal expertise we’re renowned for.
We leave the jargon at the door and work with and alongside our clients in partnership to achieve the best possible outcome with the least amount of fuss and minimal cost. Each client is unique, each case is distinctive. We draw on our hard-earned business acumen to get to know you and your case, so that our entire business, not a single department, can support you, through your process from start to end.
