The firm of choice for the world's biggest financial institutions

We offer these clients integrated and established multi-jurisdictional teams who have the precise blend of skill and experience for the job in hand. We advise not only on our clients’ own account matters, but also on the products and services they sell to their customers.

This work includes:

  • public and private M&A
  • joint ventures and restructurings
  • regulatory compliance, investigations and disputes
  • debt and equity capital markets
  • structured, leveraged and asset financing
  • antitrust
  • outsourcing
  • data protection
  • employment and benefits
  • tax advisory.

We invest heavily in developing the industry knowledge of our people, allowing them to combine their technical legal skills with a genuine understanding of the markets in which our clients operate.
