Changing the ways we work

We have consistently led our industry with our steadfast refusal to defend outmoded and redundant legal business models - instead we take time to hold discussions with our clients that help us to rethink the way we operate our business.  From more flexible billing arrangements to new services, we build on our track record of award-winning innovation:

by reducing matter costs through alternative delivery models

We find ways to apply the most appropriate sourcing model to reduce costs for clients by providing new services that build on our track record of award winning innovation.  From being one of the first firms in the UK to launch a legal process outsourcing (LPO) facility to the opening of our second UK office, in Bristol, in a direct response to our clients' requirements, we strive to offer clients more flexible ways to staff matters and transactions.

by striving for new ways of meeting our clients' requirements we have effected significant changes in the legal world

Simmons & Simmons receives regular recognition for the quality of our client service and the flexibility of our approach.  The firm wins many awards for excellence and innovation both in the services we deliver and in the way we work.

Simmons & Simmons takes corporate responsibility (CR) very seriously. We recognise that by bringing our resources to play not just in the legal world but in the communities in which we work, we can make a real difference.  We are proud of our track record in CR and constantly look for new ways to demonstrate our commitment.
