Established in 2002, Keystone Law was created by a group of pioneering lawyers who realised that the legal market was ready for something new.

A firm that uses technology and modern working practices to drive productivity and deliver results - we are structured differently, we operate differently and we think differently. Creativity, passion and innovation form the very foundations of our DNA.

Keystone provides legal advice but we do so in a way that is more efficient. With a highly bespoke and dynamic service, we also deliver better value.

Keystone has grown from a start-up to the leading law firm of its kind. Today, we have over 270 lawyers of exceptional calibre, 40 support staff and many thousands of clients.

While we continue to grow and evolve, our commitment to going above and beyond client expectation remains the same.
