Effective legal intelligence

We make the law
work for you

Mission

Our mission is to work together across disciplines, achieving successful outcomes in an ever-evolving market through skilfully applied legal intelligence.

Values

Our core values underpin the work we do at JPC, allowing us to provide the highest standards of service for all our stakeholders.

We are proud to have a diverse team, who actively engage with our values. Our people deal with every matter professionally, efficiently and respectfully.

History

Evolving to offer a full range of legal services.

JPC is the product of a merger between Porter Crossick and the Private Client, Litigation and Trust and Probate departments of Roiter Zucker. Further expansion continued in 2009 when we were joined by the practice of Sherman Phillips.

In 2018, our expansion continued, with the acquisition of a central London practice ‘Terence St J Millett’ and in doing so increased our team in both residential and commercial real estate law.

Today, JPC operates from two key locations. You will find our head office based in a historic building (a former Victorian omnibus premises) in North London, and our second office in stunning South Kensington.

Full legal services can be found in both.

As an international business our legal needs are often complex and varied. JPC’s team have advised us on all manner of legal issues and their commercial and legal knowledge has become invaluable.

Testimonials 5 - Penny Black Group

Since the initial meeting, JPC have rewritten our employment contracts and handbook, provided ongoing advice and we now use them for everything from lease agreements to drafting our shareholders agreement. Consummate professionals, thorough and with an eye for detail, their wide experience and business insight is the reason I am happy to recommend them and they remain my first choice for any legal question I might have.

It is not often that I can comment with pleasure when dealing with solicitors in this field of work but I always feel JPC are genuinely interested and are friendly whilst still being able to offer the client the service that is necessary in this complicated area of law.
