If you're a generalist, you can achieve a certain level of expertise, but you'll never really get under the skin of your subject. At Simmons & Simmons, we've decided to focus our efforts on our key sectors – Asset Management & Investment Funds, Financial Institutions, Life Sciences and Technology, Media & Telecommunications (TMT).These are all fast-moving, dynamic, and international sectors. Our clients in these sectors are typically large multi-jurisdictional organisations that require highly sophisticated legal advice.
In practice, focusing on our key hand-picked industry sectors means clients are dealing with a law firm well versed in their particular sector; aware of its finer nuances, day-to-day events and ongoing trends. The combination of specialist knowledge and international perspective gives us a keen insight into our clients' worlds, helping us stay totally in tune with their needs. It also unites all of our legal practice areas and offices that are engaged in our sector strategy.
