Who are we

BlackLion Law is a unique law firm.

Bespoke Service: We provide clients with a platinum-rated personalised bespoke service, delivering highly-experienced partner-level former City lawyers on a one-to-one basis. We eschew the traditional City approach where clients receive minimal partner input on a matter. Our clients receive a first-class, tailored service, so each and every detail is dealt with by a partner, in-house counsel or senior associate, so that legal, commercial and strategic goals are not just satisfied, but exceeded. This sets us apart among our peers and we work this way because we want to support our clients in achieving their objectives.

Poacher turned Gamekeeper: We know our sectors, because we have previously worked on the other side. Founder Negar Yazdani has acquired her experience in leading international financial institutions and law firms throughout her career and the firm is composed of finance, banking and real estate experts who are well-placed to pursue claims in these areas. Unlike other firms that act against financial institutions, we have the on-the-ground experience and inside knowledge to reinforce our service. This experience distinguishes us amongst our peers.

Conflict Free: We do not act for financial institutions and so we are not conflicted from pursuing claims against them. We are truly conflict free.

Legal Management: We recognise that the provision of legal services in today’s dynamic environment is growing more complex, with individuals and corporates struggling to find a single firm – or even a single partner at a single firm – who can meet their increasingly diverse requirements. For certain clients, we act as legal managers of a broad spectrum of corporate, commercial, litigation and personal matters. We pride ourselves on our ability to proactively manage our clients’ affairs, prepare strategies and successfully execute solutions, whilst minimising cost and risk.
