Wilmer Hale

WilmerHale's London office was established more than 40 years ago. Our London team is 50 strong and focuses specifically on international arbitration, investigations and criminal litigation, financial services enforcement and intellectual property litigation. With lawyers qualified in the United Kingdom, United States and many of the major European and other jurisdictions, the office has a pronounced pan-European and transatlantic orientation that is reflected both in its work and its culture.

Our London-based international arbitration and dispute resolution practice is world-renowned and has been involved in some of the largest, most complex and challenging international arbitrations to arise in recent years. Our UK investigations and criminal litigation lawyers advise on all aspects of criminal and regulatory investigations, working across jurisdictions on matters such as fraud, insider dealing, market abuse, bribery and corruption, cartel defense and corporate investigations. Our London IP litigation practice advises clients across the full range of intellectual property disputes, including those relating to patents, breach of confidence and trade secrets, trademarks, passing off, domain names, copyright, registered designs and design right.
