What the team is known for Internationally focused London office which displays considerable prowess in transactional mandates. Continues to lead major cross-border mandates from its London base, as well as working in conjunction with the firm's wider resources across Europe, the US and Asia.

The firm has largely adopted a highly specialised approach in London, putting significant resources into its recognised strengths of corporate M&A, competition law, capital markets and private equity-driven transactions, including sponsor-side financing work. As a result the firm remains a popular choice for transatlantic UK and US cross-border acquisitions and London also acts as a significant hub for the firm's work across Europe and Asia.

Strengths One client enthuses that the firm's London team is "very effective and manages the complex well" on global M&A matters adding: "I was really impressed with their internal co-ordination; there were several regions involved but the co-ordination was seamless from my standpoint."

A source adds that the firm's London office is particularly geared towards international work: "We see Cleary as a great partner on international matters. They're our go-to international deal counsel and we draw a great level of comfort from using them."
