About Us

Maxwell Alves is a firm of solicitors and international lawyers operating from offices in Central London and Hong Kong. In Edinburgh, we are working in association with Leslie & Co serving clients on Scottish matters. Since our establishment in 2003 in Central London, we have rapidly developed into a major legal adviser both to industry and private clients.

We specialise in matters relating to Asian and Latin American markets with a special focus on China, Hong Kong, Taiwan and Brazil. Of course, we also focus on the UK markets both domestically and internationally. Having established a reputation as a small firm that can deliver work to city standards, we now thrive on delivering international commercial and private client work with the assistance of our network of international associates.

In recognition of our proven track record of advising UK and overseas companies on international trade matters, Maxwell Alves is now on the panel of legal advisers that are maintained by UK Trade and Investment (UKTI). UKTI is a government body which forms part of the Foreign and Commonwealth Office that promotes UK bilateral trade and investment.

We are also on the Law Society’s network of lawyers for your business that are specialised in assisting companies in their commercial matters. 

We are proud to be a recommended law firm and this is a recognition of our quality service to clients. We are recommended in various areas – these are: Immigration, Property, International matters (including cross-border dispute resolution and commercial/corporate contracts) and Litigation.
