Role

Professional Support Lawyer

Location

London

Practice Area/Department

Corporate

Description

RPC is a modern, progressive and commercially-oriented City
legal services business. From our offices in the UK, Hong Kong and
Singapore we provide advice to both UK and international clients

What we do

Our practice spans a wide range of industry sectors and is broadly
split into two discrete areas: insurance and corporates. Working on
both contentious and non-contentious matters, our clients range from
large multinationals to growth UK corporate firms and other
professional practices, and include many household names.

Why we're different

We have a confident, accessible and enterprising approach that sets
performance, service and value at the top of the agenda. Our goal is
to do the usual things unusually well, make the complex simple and
help our clients build better, stronger businesses.

Our success is built on the level of service we give to clients –
delivering what they want, on time and in an easily accessible manner.

How we work

We're friendly and approachable, yet we're not afraid to give tough
advice and few are more tenacious when it comes to securing the
results you need. We ask questions that get straight to the point and
listen because we're genuinely interested in our clients and their
businesses. We understand how our clients work, the pressures they
face, and the ambitions they have. And, of course, we love our work.

Where we work

We act for a large number of international clients with interests
throughout the world. We have offices in both the UK and Asia and, as
a founder-member of TerraLex – one of the world's largest legal
networks ­­– we have strong links with law firms in over 100
jurisdictions allowing us to offer a seamless service to our clients
across the globe.
