About Us

Everything you need to know about our company, our clients, our services, and how we deliver successful outcomes

Your expert, experienced partner in commercial law

Every business, regardless of its size, purpose or aspirations, needs assistance with the legal aspects of its operations.

Not every commercial law firm, however, has the breadth of expertise and depth of experience to be able to help.

Established in 1845, Underwood & Co has been delivering excellent legal services to high-end clients from its base in the heart of London’s West End for nearly 200 years.

We combine high-flying legal excellence with a down-to-earth personal touch to bring authority, constructive advice and positive outcomes to clients with a wide range of requirements.

Our clients – however big or small you are, we can cope

Underwood & Co delivers outstanding service in partnership with businesses in a variety of industries, while maintaining a strong collective identity with teamwork and personal service at its heart.

We work with:

  • Large commercial and corporate organisations who need advice in all aspects of business law and property law
  • Entrepreneurial ventures with portfolios of all sizes
  • Private clients and family businesses with a range of commercial law and personal requirements

However large or small your business, or your requirements, we have the expertise and experience to be able to assist you.

With a team of 16 solicitors and partners with a wealth of experience, we have the capacity to take on projects of any size. Unlike many larger law firms, our size ensures each client has direct contact with one of our partners – which guarantees a truly personal touch.

Our values – what makes Underwood & Co tick?

Clients of all sizes, and in all industries, derive extensive reassurance from our team that they are receiving the ultimate in commercial law advice and action.

Our work at Underwood & Co is underpinned by several core values shared and embodied by colleagues across the business:
