PROELIUM LAW LLP
Internationally focused legal advice and support centred on high-risk and complex jurisdictions. Proelium’s central values are Integrity and Empathy with clients.
War Zones, complex environments, high-risk jurisdictions – these are all problematic spaces in which to work or conduct business, no matter the sector. Acting as a business, or as an individual, problems can be myriad and are frequently unforeseen until it is too late, the deal has fallen through, the money has been lost or situations have manifest that are tough to negotiate away from.
Our solution to these very real commercial problems is to create a scarce blend, combining the Partners’ 5 decades of experience gained whilst working in conflict zones and deep in the heart of the specialist defence and security worlds, with professional legal-expertise to bring to you a totally unique law firm, Proelium Law LLP.
The markets we particularly offer our services to are the defence, security and international development sectors and the political-risk area of the insurance market. We offer personal legal advice to individuals with ‘niche’ skills from the Intelligence and Special Forces areas.
There is limited competition in this area. Currently the only law firms offering advice to people wanting to function in the high-risk space tend to be large and expensive law firms who lack subject expertise. Proelium Law LLP is small, lean and our experience and qualifications make us uniquely well equipped to understand those issues.
Our team may be small but is vastly experienced. The Partners are an internationally recognised legal expert in the fields of high-risk jurisdictions and a proven defence and security authority, coming from a long career at the front edge of UK conventional and special operations. The firm can boast over 130 years of ground experience in complex environments and are confident when they state that there is no other legal organisations in the UK today with comparable experience or qualifications.
Our future sees more growth and an expansion into Dubai. It also sees a period of programmed consolidation, to ensure that our client focus is not compromised.
Reports are researched and compiled using a combination of legal insight with international intelligence- gathering expertise and geo-political understanding
