The firm has three partners, six associates and five legal officers.

Within a year of commencing business the firm was profiled in the prestigious 2010 Edition of IFLR 1000 (the Guide to the World’s Leading Financial Law Firms) and it has consistently been featured in the subsequent editions including the 2015 Edition. (
