We are an employment and litigation boutique offering the quality and expertise of a City firm, cost-effectively. Our clients benefit from the support of outstanding lawyers with large-firm standards and work ethic at the right price.
We don’t believe in compromising on quality of advice or service. To deliver our work to the standards our clients expect, we have removed unnecessary bureaucracy and overheads. We support our lawyers with great infrastructure and completely agile and flexible working so that they enjoy both their lives and their work.
The result is a unique, exciting work model and a friendly culture that allows us to attract really exceptional talent yet keep the costs down for our clients. It’s also made Bellevue Law an extremely happy place to work for our small team, which clients notice when they deal with us.

How We Work
The Keys to our Success
A focus on where we add value for clients
Our commercial litigators are ex-City lawyers who are trusted to work on complex and timely matters for clients ranging from major corporations to entrepreneurs and private clients. City and international firms regularly trust Bellevue Law with their clients’ disputes as a safe, affordable pair of hands.
Our employment team works mostly for owner-managed businesses and senior employees, providing clients with the benefit of decades of big-firm experience and an empathetic approach – all for an affordable fee.
Fully agile working
We support our lawyers in balancing their work and life commitments. They don’t have billing targets and our IT systems enable them to work from anywhere, whether that is home, our Wandsworth office or a network of serviced offices across London, when travelling in the UK or abroad or on-site for a client.
Our model means that we punch well above our weight in terms of the lawyers we attract. Bellevue Law isn’t a City firm, and we don’t aspire to be one, but we appeal to professionals with the same level of expertise and high standards. We won’t ever compromise on the quality of the people that we hire, or the quality of the systems that we use; but our smaller scale means that we gain efficiencies by cutting out overhead and not duplicating efforts in delegating to others.
Clients appreciate this as we offer them outstanding lawyers with large-firm standards and work ethics, personal attention and cost-effective service. We also get an impressive amount of work referred in from leading law firms because they know that for some matters we sit at the right price and quality point for their clients.
