The decision to start my own firm was a natural commercial step for me. What was harder was what to call it. My parents are both Spanish and therefore Cubism was a phrase that not only echoed my heritage but encapsulated my desire to do things in a radically different way.”
Andrew Pena, Managing Director and Founder Cubism Law
The early 20th Century avant-garde art movement known as Cubism redefined the representation of images onto canvas. Instead of viewing a subject from a fixed point, imitating the view of the beholder, artists such as Pablo Picasso and George Braque began to paint scenes that contained a multitude of perspectives. This process of looking, breaking apart and subsequently re-assembling resulted in an abstract image that depicted a greater context of the subject.
As a leading commercial Law firm based in Chancery Lane, the heart of London’s legal district, Cubism prides itself on replicating the approach of these early pioneers by bringing a fresh and inquiring perspective to the provision of legal services.
Founded in 2006 by Andrew Pena, formerly a Partner at Field Fisher Waterhouse, Cubism Law was one of the very first UK law firms to provide its services via a corporate (rather than partnership) structure. Our aim was simple; to free our partner-level lawyers from the daily grind of partnership politics and administration so that they could focus on what they do best – the delivery of an exceptional legal service in a modern and innovative way.
We have grown consistently year on year and that growth has allowed us to provide a full service offering to our corporate and international clients. We are now recognised as experts in a wide range of fields and noted for our flair and ability to find creative commercial solutions to complex legal problems. At the heart of our business is a strong partnership ethic that promotes the development of long-term engaged relationships with our people and, most importantly, our clients.
Part of our early innovation was to bring in a management team from outside the field of law. This began in 2010 with the introduction at director level of Martin Hosken, a psychologist with a creative arts background, to bring a wider and more considered perspective to the way we work and do business.
Our growth has always been underpinned by investment in our people, our structure and our systems. We moved to our current location in 2011 having outgrown our previous offices. We have since expanded by taking three additional floors at 116-118 Chancery Lane which houses our team of over 30 lawyers and 15 support staff. Our continuing growth will see us move to larger and more modern offices in the City side of Chancery Lane.
In 2012, we invested in a bespoke hosted desktop or ‘cloud’ platform and introduced new Case Management and Compliance IT systems in the subsequent year. In 2014, we began our journey of acquiring specialist legal practices by offering them a rich and supportive environment from which to grow. This has increasingly seen the firm develop new and complimentary areas of work and adding strength in depth to our main practice areas.
