Vinson & Elkins’ London office opened in 1971, making our office one of the first U.S. law firms to operate in London. Since then, we have built a dynamic office, undertaking market-leading work around the world. Our London lawyers handle construction work, disputes (including international arbitration and High Court litigation), energy transactions and projects, finance, mergers and acquisitions, private equity, and tax. This work spans numerous industries, and we have particularly notable experience across the energy, telecommunications, construction and wider infrastructure sectors.
Our London office regularly serves as the coordinating hub for much of the firm’s international and cross-border work and the team has amassed a wealth of global experience. We are accustomed to working not only in well-defined markets, but also in less familiar and more challenging environments, under developing local regimes or those with evolving communications and infrastructure. In supporting our global client base our London lawyers work closely alongside our colleagues from all V&E offices worldwide, particularly with those located in the Middle East.
We advise on disputes, transactions and projects from Africa, to Central Asia and the CIS, Latin America and the Middle East, as well as across all jurisdictions where English law transactions and projects take place. Our broad client base includes major corporates, private equity investors and financial institutions.
