The Paragon Group brings together a talented team of lawyers, commercial advisors and country experts who all share the same core values of excellent service and a passion for success.  Our team is multilingual, working across four continents and as a team we are as diverse as the clients we represent.  This has been recognised by our peers having been awarded “Best Employer” by the Law Society at the National Solicitors Race Awards for our diversity.  As a team we have adopted “The Codes of Paragon”.
