Keystone is presented to clients as a cutting-edge law firm which leverages technology and modern working practices to provide an attentive, high-quality service. We compete with the country’s leading conventional law firms and charge our services by reference to time spent and, increasingly, on a fixed-fee basis.

For our lawyers, Keystone is a firm that offers a great deal more than our conventional competitors. The firm makes available all the usual facilities, infrastructure and resources typically found in a medium-sized London law firm, but combines those benefits with unrivalled flexibility and support.

Keystone lawyers have the freedom to work from our offices, their own office, a client’s office or any combination thereof. In addition to office space and hot desks, our central office houses 35 employed individuals who together handle the firm’s administration, compliance, invoicing, banking and marketing, and generally provide cohesion to the firm’s operations.

Keystone’s fee earners are experienced lawyers with an average 22 years’ PQE gained at the country’s best law firms and in-house departments. They are looking to drive their careers forward free from the constraints of the traditional firm and to work with like-minded individuals while enjoying both the flexibility and work/life balance that flows from being self-employed.

Keystone’s client base is comprised of sophisticated individuals and businesses of all sizes. In many cases these clients have followed Keystone lawyers to the firm. Whatever their origin, clients are attracted to Keystone by the level of service, quality and value we offer.

We make every effort to ensure that Keystone’s client service is entirely seamless and cohesive. Lawyers often work in teams alongside colleagues with complementary expertise just as they would do in a conventional firm. Within the firm, lawyers also enjoy our inclusive collegiate culture, client referrals and holiday cover.
