Mission & purpose

It is not just law at Travers Smith. Travers Smith treats its clients’ business & challenges as its own. The firm’s clients know that wherever in the world they or their ambitions lie, the firm will work as one of their team to get things done. Travers Smith acts for publicly listed and private companies, financial services institutions and private equity clients, as well as other business enterprises involved in large and complex UK & cross-border matters, transactions & disputes. Diversity and independence of thought are key to the firm’s success. The firm believes that true inclusion can only be achieved if diversity is considered in a broader and more holistic way, which breaks down silos and recognises the multiple identities we each carry. For its international and cross-border work, Travers Smith has focused on building carefully cultivated relationships with independent law firms all over the world, sharing quality standards and strengths. This enables the firm to provide a first-class, seamless service for clients around the globe. The firm has chosen this route because it gives it the ability to pick the best firm for every piece of work, providing a one-firm approach wherever the firm’s clients conduct their business. Travers Smith regularly coordinates the provision of overseas advice for particular matters, as well as recommends law firms for its clients to instruct directly. What distinguishes Travers Smith’s model is the investment it makes into developing its relationships with the best independent law firms in the world. Travers Smith is always looking to recruit people from all backgrounds, with academic excellence and sound judgement who take their careers, but not themselves, seriously. The firm’s training philosophy is that skill & expertise are best acquired through practical experience, complemented by carefully targeted formal instruction. Great emphasis is placed on continuous learning & development towards personal & professional growth.
