MJ Hudson law firm

MJ Hudson began life as a law firm and law remains central to all we do.

Founded as the “alternative assets law firm” we still pride ourselves on being a strong alternative to the magic circle and white shoe institutions. Whilst we recruit from these firms and share their focus on quality and reliability, we have a reputation for being more practical and more commercial. Our services run from concept to execution and can blend in a wide variety of other services and expertise, along the way. As a result, we spot unanticipated consequences and hidden opportunities that others might miss.

I am proud of our reputation for saying "yes", using our experience and creativity to find a way to get the job done. Our level of specialism and the breadth of complementary services we provide, at MJ Hudson, means clients are always working with a team that truly understands their business and how to help them achieve ambitious goals.
Running our VC law practice means that I get to work with exciting innovators and the visionary investors that back them. Our clients are literally changing the world for the better and being part of that is hugely fulfilling. At MJ Hudson, we've built a team of top-tier lawyers and home-grown talent that our clients just can't get enough of.
Who we work with
MJ Hudson is not only the best value law firm, but it or, more precisely, its partners and employees, are also technically spot on, highly efficient and charming to deal with. We can’t recommend the firm enough.
Lucia Villamor, Head of Investor Relations at Endless LLP
We worked with MJ Hudson on a complex, multi-jurisdictional leveraged management buyout of a UK-headquartered virtual reality business. The team at MJ Hudson was always available. The offering is well-tailored to our industry with seamless integration of their M&A and Finance teams.
Rorian Strehle, Alpina Partners
MJ Hudson is more than just a dynamic law firm providing top rate legal advice – it is a trusted adviser, critical in choppy waters. Most importantly, its partners are accessible, responsive and pragmatic.
Susan Payne, Emvest Asset Management
We instructed MJ Hudson on a recent insolvency matter and found the team to be dedicated, and responsive. Team members draw upon their strengths in various related disciplines and are able to deal with issues quickly and provide technical, focused advice.
David Fordham, Buchler Phillips
MJ Hudson’s lawyers have taken a refreshing and entrepreneurial approach, helping us come up with creative solutions and simplifying complexity, wherever possible. Their dedication and level of service has been greatly appreciated.
Leila Rastegar Zegna, Kindred Capital
Focus and deliverability. No excuses; no mistakes. Only the very large firms can deliver similar quality but at significantly higher costs. Deep knowledge of the private equity and fund worlds.

MJ Hudson’s referencing programme was very well received by investors during the Endless V fundraise. It was a really efficient way of providing investors with access to unbiased, relevant references. The feedback from investors was that the referencing pack was very comprehensive, robust and objective. This really helped streamline the referencing process and saved us and our referees significant time, compared to prior fundraisings. We found MJ Hudson to be very agile and knowledgeable and we really valued their input and ideas.
