As my promotional and economic development organisation, London & Partners helps foreign owned companies to understand how London can play a role in the development and delivery of their international business plans and so create economic growth and jobs for Londoners. In doing so, London & Partners provides a range of services, for example the provision of business intelligence and comparative data about other global cities and, through its network of commercial partners, advice on business critical issues such as legal structure, accountancy, employment law, recruitment of staff and securing the right business and residential property. A key element of the London & Partners value proposition to business is that the services are delivered on a confidential basis. London & Partners cannot therefore make public the details of its clients nor their business plans. However London & Partners would be happy to meet you privately and explain their work in more detail.
