Nicholas Woolf & Co was established by Nicholas Woolf as a central London solicitors firm with a difference.
Experience and background mean a lot but we believe attitude also matters. We want the best for our clients.
With our breadth of experience – at home and internationally – we aim to provide a one-to-one quality service at all times.
We are set apart from other firms by the following factors:
Nicholas Woolf & Co is a modern central London solicitors firm offering a wide range of bespoke legal services to businesses and private clients.
We have the breadth and depth of experience to provide the broad view you need, and yet we are small enough to care.
We understand the importance of providing practical, clear, and jargon-free advice, and that cost effective solutions matter.
We will look after you and give you the kind of personal attention that larger firms cannot.
If you are to obtain the best resolution to your legal problem, it is important that you are able to navigate your way through the ever changing legal landscape. That is where we come in.
We understand the importance of staying ahead of the game. By giving your matter the attention that larger firms cannot, we are able to identify, and help you to prevent, potential obstacles before they arise. We are also able to identify, and advise you on, opportunities that arise, in order to place you in a stronger position.
We also understand the importance of nuance in dealing with our clients’ legal problems. Different parties, with different legal issues, in different circumstances, will often require a different approach.
Whilst many firms will adopt a "house style", irrespective of these differences, at Nicholas Woolf & Co we believe in always using the right peg in the right hole.
With collectively over 40 years of legal experience, we are able to fine tune our approach to the parties, issues, and circumstances, and ensure that our clients are placed in the strongest possible position.
At Nicholas Woolf & Co we have experience of assisting individuals and companies all over the world. Examples include:
- conducting the sale of a UK quoted company to a US quoted company
- conducting international company reorganisations
- advising companies in the Far East on international employment contracts.
- advising and acting in respect of international contentious probate disputes, involving a number of cases over several jurisdictions.
- advising and acting in respect of non-contentious probate matters where there is a conflict of laws, also in multiple jurisdictions.
The firm has extensive connections in the USA. We have acted in a number of substantial commercial and contentious matters and in matrimonial cases with a US element. We have also provided expert witness evidence in US Courts.
We have advised in numerous matrimonial cases involving other countries.
Our experience of cultures and jurisdictions includes:
Australia, Belgium, Brazil, Bulgaria, Canada, Denmark, Dutch Antilles, Egypt, Estonia, France, Germany, Greece, Guernsey, Holland, Hungary, India, Indonesia, Iran, Iraq, Ireland, Isle of Man, Israel, Italy, Jamaica, Japan, Jersey, Jordan, Kenya, Latvia, Lebanon, Malaysia, Monaco, Morocco, New Zealand, Nigeria, Norway, Pakistan, Poland, Russia, Scotland, Singapore, South Africa, Sweden, Switzerland, Spain, Syria, UAE, USA, Vietnam.
Unlike most small firms, we have the benefit of an experienced barrister working within the firm. This means that we are able to provide both advocacy and specialist opinions, without the need to refer such matters to outside chambers of barristers. As a result, we can ensure that you are represented and advised by somebody who is involved with your matter throughout, as opposed to someone who may only have been able to devote a few hours to your cause.
