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.
