Customer types





FLADGATE is a nimble 85-partner law firm that is known for its ability to work on fast-moving, complex challenges requiring enterprising and commercial solutions. Our client base is made up heavily of UHNW/HNW individuals and their advisers with intricate and generally multi-jurisdictional needs, as well as entrepreneurial growth businesses that are often ‘trend initiators’.

Our clients often have fast-moving, complex challenges and require smart, commercial and enterprising solutions. We deliver against their high expectations by being extensively connected across their worlds, immersed in their goals and constantly searching to not just understand their business needs but anticipate them.

Our distinctive approach stems from providing a level of personal service that they do not get from the other firms they use*. Our partners operate in small close-knit and collaborative teams. Fladgate has carefully structured these teams around a partner-to-fee-earner ratio of 1:3, ensuring a uniquely personal service. They not only take the lead but also do a significant amount of the detailed work. This and our strongly personal and collaborative culture results in an ability to move efficiently and at speed.

We combine nimble and efficient with high quality, full service and international capabilities. Clients appreciate our personal scale and flat, efficient structure but know we can also help across the full breadth of their needs and bring international connectivity. We deliver all this from one office without the overheads or bureaucracy of larger international network firms.
