Keystone Law is one of the most respected law firms in the UK and its fast rise is reshaping the UK legal market. It is a multiple award-winning Top 50 law firm that is continuing to make waves. In 2017 it listed on the London Alternative Investment Market, and it continues to go from strength to strength with investors and clients alike. The firm is ranked by Chambers & Partners and The Legal 500, and in November 2020 we were named Law Firm of the Year at the prestigious The Lawyer Awards, the ultimate accolade in the legal industry. In January 2021, Keystone was also crowned Happiest Firm of the Year by RollOnFriday after achieving a 94% employee satisfaction score in the publication’s annual survey. As the UK’s happiest law firm, our lawyers are some of the most satisfied in the industry. 

Our lawyers are drawn from the partnerships of the top 50 firms and some high-quality boutique firms, who bring their client base with them.
