On paper we’re a full-service law firm, providing legal services to companies, organisations, government departments, families and people throughout life and in business. But we offer so much more than that. Expertise, commerciality and relationships are at the very heart of what we do. Our purpose is clear and our ambitions are unlimited: we want to unlock potential in our people and clients, inspiring confidence, growth and development.
With 10 offices across the UK and over 1200 people we have teams specialising in corporate and commercial, employment and immigration, real estate and planning, dispute resolution, banking and finance, private client and family law.
Working with organisations of all sizes, Shakespeare Martineau delivers a broad range of specialist legal services across sectors including energy, education, healthcare, investment funds, construction, agriculture, family business, Islamic finance, later living, social housing, charities and not-for-profit and food, leisure and hospitality. We work with household names, national brands and major institutions as well as regional businesses, family firms and growing organisations.
Shakespeare Martineau, as part of Ampa Group, is B-Corporation certified and is one of the first professional services groups to gain this certification. What does this mean? It means that the firm is committed to and legally required to consider the impact of business decisions on its people, customers, suppliers, communities and the environment, ensuring a balance between purpose, people and profit.
