McCarthy Denning is dedicated to providing clients with partner-level advice. McCarthy Denning has been structured to meet the needs of clients. Rather than operating the pyramid structure traditionally adopted by major law firms (where partners generate work for teams of junior assistants and trainees), the partners at McCarthy Denning undertake the vast bulk of the legal work supported by fellow partners, and a team of highly experienced associates. This eliminates the double cost of trainees and junior associates undertaking the work with partners reviewing and re-working their work product. It also means that clients have immediate and direct access to the extensive legal and commercial experience our partners have built up over a number of years at major law firms.


Our lawyers have the best possible pedigree and credentials. They combine the highest levels of expertise with a love of client service and a dedication to getting the job done efficiently and effectively. They respect the traditional values of the law, but are not hidebound by the conventional approaches to legal problem solving. For them legal knowledge is only one facet of what they can offer their clients. There are others that are at least equally as important - such as using their connections to make things happen for clients and applying their commercial nous to ensure that clients achieve their business goals.

Other Advisors

Whilst McCarthy Denning does not have a team of associates on the payroll, there are a number of other advisors available at any one time to assist the partners if necessary. All have the necessary experience to be partners in law firms but have chosen to provide consultancy services on a more flexible basis.

Management and Administration

Our firm is underpinned by a strong business support team, which offer a seamless, supportive service.
