The Firm

"Payne Hicks Beach is synonymous with top-quality" The Legal 500

We provide specialist bespoke legal services to private and commercial clients.

The firm’s reputation has been built on our family and private client work and we are regarded as one of the very best of the small number of firms in the UK that provide these specialist services at the highest level. This is complemented with a top-ranking capability in key areas of commercial law and privacy and media law.

Our offices are located in one of the finest squares in London, 10 New Square Lincoln's Inn, a building which the firm has occupied since 1770. Whilst the exterior may reflect the firm’s heritage its interiors combine state of the art equipment within classical surroundings. Our client meeting rooms, many of which have unrivalled views over New Square, host artwork from Anderson & Low.

How We Work

We handle complex problems for people and businesses and whether you are an individual or a corporate client, our advice will be incisive, straightforward and solution led.  We are used to working under pressure, often in stressful - and sometimes emotional - situations: we handle difficult issues sensitively but are completely focused on protecting your interests.

We take the time to understand all our clients' needs. We advise our individual clients objectively but sensitively, to suit their particular circumstances. If you are a commercial client we make sure we understand your business and the commercial realities you face so that our advice is absolutely right for you.

Our structure and our commitment to outstanding client service mean that all our specialist advisers work closely with each other to deliver seamless advice across all our practice areas.
