While partnering with clients from all sectors, we have a number of industry focused groups — including Entertainment, Franchise, Insurance, Retail and Transport and Logistics — and a special US Practice

Since 1981, we have delivered our clients — including SMEs, family businesses and high-net-worth individuals — superior value through the diversity, expertise and direct involvement of Principal Lawyers, who continue to provide highly strategic advice and representation.

It's business as usual at KCL Law

We wish to assure our valued clients that it is business as usual and that they will continue to receive the same high-quality service.

Unfortunately, due to the seven-day 'circuit breaker' lockdown that commenced 11.59 pm on Thursday 27 May, which has now been extended for another seven days, our staff are again working remotely.

While our staff may be working remotely, they are readily accessible via email and telephone. All meetings will now be conducted via telephone, teleconference or video conferencing.

KCL Law takes this opportunity to thank you for your understanding in these extraordinary circumstances.
