A bit about Buckworths

Due to our innovative and client-centric approach, we are highly sought after as the number 1 advisor for startups based in the UK and seeking to move to the UK.
The team is small and friendly and the office environment is relatively informal. Everyone works hard and is expected to strive at all times to ensure that our clients experience the best possible service.
