A Culture of Clarity

What makes Nabarro different from other law firms you may be considering? We can sum up what sets us apart in just two little words. We’ll tell you what they are in a moment…

Let’s start with an admission. In tangible terms, there isn’t really a great deal to choose between leading law firms. They are all good at what they do. Measurable differences are few; genuine “USPs” are in short supply.

But that doesn’t mean they are all the same. And when you’re trying to improve the odds of making the right choice, there are some important distinctions you need to take into account. One such, we’d suggest, relates to size. Nabarro is big enough to compete at the highest level, and provide you with opportunities to do great work on interesting, high profile projects, yet small enough that you won’t feel like you are just a number.

This more human scale doesn’t just make Nabarro a really friendly and enjoyable place to work; we believe it’s an important part of what our clients like about us. We’re known as an exceptionally personable and user-friendly law firm – good at giving positive and practical advice, based on a higher than average degree of no-nonsense commercial awareness, and a genuinely entrepreneurial spirit.

Which brings us to those two words we mentioned just now: clarity matters. Introduced as part of a major rebranding of the firm back in 2007, that phrase was intended to capture the qualities we’ve just described, in the most distilled form possible. And since then, clarity has come to play a vitally important role in the life of the firm – and not just as a promise to provide clients with clear, commercially focused, gobbledegook-free advice that helps them resolve the most complex issues and challenges they face.

We really do believe that conducting ourselves in an open and transparent way, without any unnecessary complexity, makes Nabarro a better law firm. And, from your point of view, one with a clear-cut difference.

The company we keep

What else makes Nabarro a better place to build a brilliant legal career? Our clients, of course. And we’d like to introduce you very briefly here to a few of the exciting businesses and brands whose interests you could soon be helping to protect and promote…


The world’s foremost internet giant needs no introduction. We helped Google acquire a 2.6 acre site at the King’s Cross Estate, for the c£1billion development of their new c1million square feet UK HQ. It was hailed in the press as ‘the deal of the century’ and we’re continuing to work with Google on this exciting development which may see a cluster of technology companies flock to the area.

Land Securities

Land Securities is the UK’s largest Real Estate Investment Trust with a commercial property portfolio worth around £11.45bn. We’ve worked with them for over 50 years across all aspects of their portfolio. Recent examples include the joint venture with Canary Wharf on the £500m “Walkie-Talkie” development in the City, the regeneration of Cardiff City Centre (in a joint venture with Intu) and the development of St David’s Shopping Centre.

Aston Martin

We advised the makers of 007’s car of choice on a £150m investment by Prestige Motor Holdings, giving the iconic brand an enterprise value of £780m ahead of its next stage of development.


GSK is one of the world’s best known brands, with a reputation for developing innovative pharmaceutical and healthcare products. We’ve advised GSK on a variety of competition cases, supporting its expansion into developing healthcare sectors by advising on acquisitions such as the £162m takeover of sports nutrition company, Maxinutrition.

Molson Coors

Brewing giant Molson Coors produces the world’s favourite beer brands, including Coors Light, Carling, Staropramen and Cobra. We support them in their goal of becoming a top four global brewer by providing topnotch advice on competition law and high volume debt recovery.

Department of Energy & Climate Change

DECC focuses on ensuring that the UK has secure, clean and affordable energy supplies, as well as taking international action on climate change. We support DECC by leading its defence in major group litigations and providing a range of strategic legal advice relating to the legacies of the nationalised coal industry.

Clarity Matters: Bird & Fortune

Since the firm’s re-brand in early 2007, we have developed a number of advertising campaigns and video sketches around the absurdity of exaggerated and over-complicated English and the importance of providing clear concise legal advice that meets business needs.

These video sketches relate specifically to graduate recruitment and get this message across in a tongue in cheek kind of way. Enjoy!
