One of the hallmarks at Vinson & Elkins is that the interests of our clients are paramount. Our commitment to providing world-class counsel and building long-standing relationships is at the heart of who we are. It’s the people – such as you – that fuel our passion to help you to achieve more.
It is with this commitment to clients in mind that we are proud to be celebrating 50 years since we established our office in London.
We have always been a pioneer in the legal industry, it’s simply in our DNA as a firm, and taking the bold step in 1971 to be one of the first U.S. law firms to operate in London is something we are proud to have built with you.
During the last 50 years, our team in London has grown to comprise a full-service team of lawyers who work across a number of practice areas, and with nearly 700 colleagues around the firm, to serve as legal counsel all around the world. Our highly skilled partners and counsel support a diverse client base, from highly regarded financial sponsors to government entities, in their most complex and high-value legal matters, including everything from construction disputes in Latin America, to digital infrastructure investments all over Europe, investor-state arbitration involving the Middle East, and major infrastructure developments across Africa.
We are excited to be marking this occasion with you throughout the course of 2021, and we look forward to sharing our London stories with you from our website and social media channels.
From our humble beginnings at 170 Piccadilly to our location today at 20 Fenchurch Street, we want to thank you for your trust and collaboration over the years. We look forward to servicing your needs in the next 50 years.
