About us

Everything we do is focused on ensuring we are ‘Lawyers you’ll enjoy working with’. Here you can find out more about why our clients find our approach refreshing.

Our brand

We are lawyers you’ll enjoy working with. We deliver high-quality, agile and responsive legal services to our clients. Greenwoods GRM is a great solution to your legal issues.

Our practice area heads are consistently rated in the legal directories.

We have established bases in London, Cambridge and Peterborough together with international specialisms including South Korea, Italy and Germany.

Our firm’s quality is reinforced by strong “best friend” referral relationships with a number of City firms.

We offer to the lawyers who work with us high-quality, interesting work, along with a real focus on work-life balance. This means we attract and retain exceptional lawyers – and our clients benefit significantly as a result.

Through the GRM history, Greenwoods GRM dates back to 1784, and can claim four past Law Society Presidents and to have drawn up the laws of Rugby Union.

Working with you

Our firm’s ethos is simple. We employ technically astute lawyers to provide focused, pragmatic straightforward advice based on a clear understanding of client objectives.

This is backed up with a straight-talking approach to costs.

Through putting clients at the heart of what we do, being team players and managing our business well we deliver a seamless, high quality service. This is what makes us different. We are lawyers you’ll enjoy working with.

Giving something back

We have an ethos of community involvement and support many members of the Greenwoods GRM team who are involved in a range of community, social and environmental initiatives.

We regularly enable employees to take time out of the office to support voluntary organisations and trusts. Some choose to raise funds for our chosen charities through active charity work, whereas others attend Governor and Board meetings for charities and schools during the working day. Having this ethos in place brings our CSR principles to life.

This year we have selected ‘Cardiomyopathy UK – the heart muscle charity‘ as our Charity of the Year for 2019. Our team of CSR volunteers work hard to create a number of exciting events taking place over the course of the year, to raise as much as possible for our chosen causes.
