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.
