Thomas Cooper brings together a rich body of knowledge of maritime, trade and finance law in key jurisdictions around the world.   This enables us to serve the global needs of our clients with speed and expertise, covering all the major time zones.

Since 1825 successive generations of partners have seen international trade evolve and the firm adapt to meet the changing needs of clients. We are an unusual combination, specialist yet international, focused on detail yet keeping the big picture in mind.

We cover the world, bringing a real, pragmatic understanding of how to interpret the law in different countries, regions and continents. Then we apply this understanding to our clients’ advantage, getting to the heart of issues quickly and effectively. But we remain clear that our people are key – they provide deep expertise and strong character. The focus and commitment that this gives us sets us apart from the big, multi-practice firms.

All of our global offices operate together as one firm and provide support and expertise to each other as and when required.
