We have been named as one of the government’s champions to help overseas businesses grow in the UK by being included in the government’s UK Investment Support Directory as one of their chosen experts.

The directory introduces UK experts to international businesses looking to invest and grow in the UK.

Our firm is supported by a team fluent in more than 10 languages, including Spanish, Arabic, Russian, French and Mandarin Chinese, who have helped clients and contacts expand overseas or set up operations in the UK, meaning the government’s directory was a natural fit.

Speaking on the launch of the UK Investment Support Directory, Minister for Investment, Graham Stuart MP said: “The launch of the new Investment Support Directory is one of many ways in which DIT is helping to drive investment to every corner of the UK. We hope this new Directory will be an invaluable resource for investors thinking of setting up operations in the UK. We are making it easier for foreign investors to find opportunities in the UK, supported by our network of HMTCs and global experts across more than 100 countries, to ensure the UK remains the number one destination for foreign direct investment in Europe.”

Mark Slaughter, Director General for Investment at the Department for International Trade said: “The UK Investment Support Directory is a smart, new digital tool that innovatively connects investors to private sector expertise. This interactive platform allows investors to tailor their searches to find the specific advice they are looking for or generates a range of businesses if they aren’t sure what they’re looking for yet. It is another way DIT is helping support foreign investment by streamlining connections between UK businesses and overseas investors.”

Andrew Griggs, Senior Partner and Head of International said: “We have been helping companies grow overseas and in the UK for many years. It is a real honour to be included as one of the government’s champions and is recognition of our expertise.

“Britain is most certainly open for business and we’re here to help.”
