Why Oracle Solicitors
Oracle Solicitors International Law Firm, able to follow a worldwide network of clients, with one lawyers operating all over the globe and offices in Naples, Milan, London, Belfast, Addis Ababa, Frankfurt, Poznan and Dublin.
Oracle Solicitors was founded by Sajjad Shan in 2002. Having started with just three staff members and a small office, Oracle’s practical, problem-solving approach to its clients’ needs has seen it grow into an international law firm with specialist teams providing a depth of expertise in a range of practice areas. At Oracle, we’re proud that we have never lost touch with our modest beginnings: they still shape our values and outlook, and drive the focused, commercially astute and cost-effective legal service that we take pride in providing to every single client. This is not a ‘flash’ law firm in any sense.
As Managing Partner Sajjad Shan says:
Modern law may be a service business, but our essential focus has always been on solving our clients’ problems – whether they’re individuals or large organisations. I’m proud that as we’ve grown, we’ve kept the core values that have made us so successful. Clients don’t come to Oracle to look at the art on our walls, or for the quality of our coffee. They come because Oracle has built its reputation on delivering for our clients with clear advice, expert analysis and a resolute focus on solving each unique legal problem.
Oracle Solicitors is now a well-established, multi-jurisdictional law firm with offices in London, Belfast, Frankfurt and Addis Ababa. As well as providing specialist advice in all principal areas of law, the business is particularly in tune with the needs and demands of overseas clients. To this end, members of the Oracle team are conversant in a wide range of languages.
Oracle Solicitors originally set out to support private individuals in and around London but are now attracting a wide range of commercial business from international clientele. The no-nonsense approach that is being applied by Oracle has helped the firm win business internationally and is one of the governing principles behind their operations.
A contributing factor to Oracle Solicitors growth has been the “hands on” approach that they offer, similar to that of a smaller firm. This ensures that handling of each case is tailored specifically because they understand that each case is unique, which has led to happier clients.
Extensive and comprehensive knowledge management is an integral part of the professional development of every lawyer with the firm. Paralegals and trainees are nurtured and guided through qualification to help them reach their potential and become fully fledged solicitors. Further scope for growth is encouraged throughout the company and there is no better example than that of Director, Claire Kelly. Originally a non-practising barrister, Claire joined as a paralegal in 2010 and has risen up the ranks to where she is today.
We recognise the regulatory requirements of the EU can be especially burdensome for those seeking to access the European market from the outside. This is one of the reasons why Oracle now has an office in Addis Ababa, servicing entrepreneurs in East Africa. International coverage of our work has attracted interest from other law firms across the globe, seeking closer association and partnership with Oracle.
Oracle have gained a brilliant reputation for assisting with refusal and appeals due to their proven track record of challenging immigration decisions against the Home Office and defending their clients right to remain in the UK.
A major growth area for the firm has been the Aviation sector. It is a heavily regulated area and the firm’s expanding team of specialists has brought a thorough understanding of air transport regulation to the table, alongside industry specific knowledge on licensing, industry commercial contracts, competition, merger regulation and corporate.
The firm have successfully won extradition proceedings against the Russian Federation and continue to fight extradition proceedings against our long list of clients.
