Gibson, Dunn and Crutcher UK LLP in London is a limited liability partnership, registered in Delaware. A list of the partners and their qualifications is open for inspection at Telephone House, 2-4 Temple Avenue, London EC4Y 0HB, United Kingdom.

VAT Number: GB 756 2184 21.

Gibson, Dunn and Crutcher UK LLP in London is authorised and regulated by the Solicitors Regulation Authority (Number 324652), whose regulations can be found at http://www.sra.org.uk. It is not authorised under the Financial Services and Markets Act 2000 but is able in certain circumstances to offer a limited range of investment services to clients because it is supervised and regulated by the Solicitors Regulation Authority. It can provide these investment services if they are an incidental part of the professional services that it has been engaged to provide.

Gibson, Dunn and Crutcher UK LLP in London is insured in accordance with the requirements of the Solicitors’ Indemnity Insurance Rules 2009 through Lloyd’s of London with Pembroke Syndicate 4000 of One Lime Street, London EC3M 7HA. The territorial coverage of the policy extends to acts or omissions arising out of the professional business of the London firm wherever they occur.

In accordance with the Solicitors Regulation Authority’s Transparency Rules, we have published costs information here regarding the services that Gibson Dunn can provide in respect of Employment Tribunal claims. A summary of our 2023 diversity data is available here.

The Economic Crime (Transparency and Enforcement) Act 2022 introduced a new register of overseas entities (“ROE”) at Companies House.  The ROE is a publicly searchable register that records the beneficial ownership of non-UK entities holding UK land.  Registration at Companies House is not straightforward and involves the registrable information being independently verified by a “relevant person”.  A relevant person includes financial institutions, accountants, tax advisers, lawyers and trust/company service providers.  Following detailed guidance from the Law Society, Gibson Dunn, in common with the majority of English-regulated law firms, does not conduct ROE verification as a service for clients.  There are, however, a number of UK company service providers that do offer this service.


If you are a client of the Firm and there is anything you are not happy about, please let us know straight away. In the first instance, you should contact either the person handling the matter in question or the contact partner. If you are still dissatisfied, you should raise your concern with one of the Co-Partners-In-Charge of our London office. If for any reason we are unable to resolve the problem between us, then complaints and redress mechanisms are provided through the Legal Ombudsman. The Legal Ombudsman’s jurisdiction is set out in the Legal Services Act 2007 and in the Legal Ombudsman’s Scheme Rules. Under those Scheme Rules, if the matter has not been resolved to your satisfaction after raising it with one of the Co-Partners-in-Charge, you may have the right to refer it to the Legal Ombudsman. The Legal Ombudsman’s contact details are: Legal Ombudsman, PO Box 6167, Slough SL1 0EH, United Kingdom; email: [email protected]; see www.legalombudsman.org.uk for further information. The Legal Ombudsman expects complaints to be made to it no later than one year from the act/omission about which you wish to complain or one year from when you should reasonably have known there was cause for complaint.  Ordinarily you must refer your complaint to the Legal Ombudsman within six months of the date of our final written response to you (www.legalombudsman.org.uk/information-centre/learning-resources/the-leo-process/guidance-scheme-rules-faq). If you are concerned about our behaviour, the Solicitors Regulation Authority can help; see www.sra.org.uk/ for further information.
