Hunton Andrews Kurth LLP's Overview

Established in 1999, Hunton Andrews Kurth’s London office comprises 18 lawyers with experience in a wide range of legal matters. The office is located at the heart of one of the world’s major financial and transactional centres, forms an integral part of the firm’s international practice and is at the forefront of the firm’s growing presence in new markets across the globe. The London office offers legal services under both English and US law and regularly advises on both UK and cross-border transactions.

In London, other European and US capital markets, the firm represents issuers, sponsors and underwriters in IPOs and secondary offerings, in both debt and equity securities markets. The banking and finance team advises borrowers, banks and financial institutions on secured and unsecured syndicated and bilateral credits as well as on securitisations of a range of assets, including loans, consumer receivables, real estate and hedge fund interests.

The firm’s London-based energy and project finance team has advised energy companies, developers and financial institutions on acquisitions, projects, financings and trading activities. They advise on renewables projects, including waste-to-energy facilities, biomass, wind (onshore and offshore), and climate change law and policy. Firm lawyers in London are also well versed in all aspects of international oil and gas and LNG transactions as well as in resolving complex commercial disputes both relating to energy and in the wider construction and engineering fields.

The firm’s strength in data protection is evident in its cadre of data protection lawyers with significant experience in developing enterprise-wide information management programs. The real estate and property finance team acts for institutional investors and property companies in the acquisition, disposal and management of investment properties, for banks and other financial institutions in property finance transactions, and for developers in property developments.

Our dedication to the community is manifested not only by a commitment to a significant pro bono practice, but also by our involvement in many local service projects.
