“You’ll never do a whole lot unless you’re brave enough to try”

Wise words from the great Dolly Parton. As Mantle Law celebrates its 2nd birthday, I have been reflecting on what has been an amazing 24 months.

Mantle Law was launched with a clarity of vision; to house a leading set of lawyers in the construction, infrastructure and energy sectors. We have stuck to this vision and have grown to a team of 13 working out of our offices in the UAE and London. We represent some of the most significant clients in our chosen sectors on some of the most substantial projects in the world.

By focusing on the client experience and insisting on absolute excellence in service, we have built a strong presence in the UK and Middle East which has been recognised by our clients and peers alike and reflected in the directories and the scores of mandates we have already been instructed upon.

Mantle Law has quickly become an established market presence and we frequently stand shoulder to shoulder (and occasionally toe to toe) with the leading law firms in our sectors.

However, it feels like we have only just begun and the growth to date is just the start. I suspect this is because all at Mantle Law have an element of entrepreneurship inside of them which means that we will never stand still and will always be pushing ourselves, our firm and the market. Once a challenger, always a challenger!

Mantle Law is its people and we are proud to have welcomed two babies into the Mantle family; had our first marriage; and even a couple of new dogs! We are a set of incredibly talented lawyers but we are also a family and the success of Mantle Law is down to each of its amazing family members.

We have some incredibly exciting announcements coming soon with regard to the expansion of our team and market presence.

It goes to show that Dolly is right, with a little bravery it is possible to do quite a lot.

Thanks all – you know who you are!
