About us

Watson Farley & Williams

We are an international law firm advising on complex transactions and disputes through an integrated network rooted in local knowledge. Core sectors are at the heart of our work, enabling us to offer our people unique opportunities to work with sector-focussed experts and make tangible impacts.

Watson Farley & Williams began life in 1982 as an asset finance boutique serving the maritime and aviation industries. We have since expanded into other supply-chain led industries, notably energy (including renewables) and associated infrastructure. In all these, we combine technical excellence with exceptional industry knowledge, providing a full suite of services and delivering outstanding value.

Our teams are integrated across offices and legal disciplines, using local understanding of business customs and cultures to deliver consistently high levels of service, both locally and across borders.

Investing in our people is critical for achieving our business goals. By valuing and modelling integrity, respect, collaboration and strong communication within the firm, we seek to develop deep and long-lasting relationships, both internally and with external stakeholders.
