London commercial law firm

Bracher Rawlins is a commercial law practice based in Holborn, London. We help our clients achieve their objectives by providing a tailored, creative approach to solving the everyday and extraordinary challenges they face in their businesses and beyond.

Our experienced, dedicated team of partners, solicitors and consultants make a significant contribution to our clients’ legal projects, both at home and abroad.

We advise on a wide range of issues including mergers and acquisitions, litigation, real estate transactions and partnership disputes, as well as employment and bloodstock law.


In 1994, Alan Bracher and Simon Rawlins were partners in an established London law firm and were convinced that together they could build a new practice that would successfully compete in the London legal market. In April of that year they launched Bracher Rawlins.

The firm’s values

For the past 20 years, the firm has focused on delivering a highly personalised, 360 degree legal service that places people over profits. As a result, the practice has built a reputation for excellence among clients, staff and peers alike.

The partners value the firm’s independence and believe that this contributes to its collegiate atmosphere and in turn the loyalty it receives from its clients. The partners’ aim is to continue to grow Bracher Rawlins by advancing the careers of lawyers within the firm and building on its excellent client relationships.
