Client Testimonials

"When we first met Taylor Wessing years ago we were a much smaller company. Then we were still exclusively US-based, had not used English lawyers before, and were still not sure how the relationship or our overseas expansion would work out. We chose Taylor Wessing after visiting and interviewing five London firms. Taylor Wessing advised us in setting up our first UK entity and London office.

"Their delivery was what they had promised and more. Our initial set up in the UK was clean, crisp and reasonably priced. A few years later, having grown our UK presence considerably, and having added offices to various other locations worldwide, we made a bid for an English multi-national called Orchestream Holdings Plc. Again we chose Taylor Wessing, this time to support our due diligence work and making the offer.

"We successfully acquired Orchestream, and today we continue to use Taylor Wessing to support our increased base of operations in Europe. We have no problem in recommending Taylor Wessing to other inward investors, small or large, and regardless of the size of investment being made."

"Taylor Wessing's International Corporate Group is dedicated to inward investment and delivering everything required quickly, with great quality and responsiveness and at reasonable fees. We would strongly recommend them to any other company wanting to come to the UK."
