Our firm was founded in the City of London in 2010 and our London office, based in the heart of the City, alongside many of the world’s leading law firms, remains the firm’s international headquarters.

Home to a dedicated team of leading lawyers, including many who have been recognised by well-regarded law firm directories such as Chambers UK and The Legal 500, our City of London office is a gateway for much of the firm’s international work in APAC, continental Europe, the Middle East, Africa, and North America. As our largest international office, London is home to many of the Spencer West leadership team, including Simeon Spencer, our senior partner, and Antoine West, our managing partner.

Designed with teamwork and innovation in mind, the Spencer West London office provides our UK lawyers with a workspace where they can collaborate with colleagues and meet with clients in a modern and dynamic setting. As a client-driven community of highly experienced lawyers, everything is geared towards providing the best possible service to our clients.

In London, and across the UK, we advise on the entire spectrum of English law and international legal matters on behalf of businesses, families, and individuals, with a strong team of experts providing advice across a range of practice areas, including corporate commercial, commercial dispute resolution, employment law, tax, regulatory, intellectual property, private client, family law, contentious trusts, and real estate.

The London office, and its wider UK-based team, also have significant sector specific experience across several key sectors, including technology, automotive, aviation, healthcare, education, and life sciences.

From multinational companies to large institutions and private clients, we can assist businesses, family offices, and individuals, to navigate the UK legal framework, whether the matter relates purely to a UK transaction or case, or to a matter where English law is only one part of a wider international equation. Many of our UK qualified solicitors are qualified in other jurisdictions, giving them a unique perspective when matters require English law knowledge in the context of an international framework.
