Setting up in the UK - A Handbook for Overseas Law Firms

The UK Government welcomes and supports overseas companies in establishing themselves and investing in the UK. The UK is one of the largest recipients of foreign direct investment (FDI) worldwide and the Government actively encourages foreign businesses to set up in the UK.

There are few restrictions on FDI into the UK and it is possible to invest in almost any sector. Moreover, a transparent tax regime, the familiarity of the English language and, in some cases, similar legal and accounting systems makes the UK an appealing destination for law firms from across the globe.
