Overview

We cover the full spectrum of corporate transactions from mergers and acquisitions, joint ventures, commercial, employment to restructuring, compliance and regulatory. We regularly advise on local, inbound, outbound, cross-border and multi-jurisdictional transactions for leading companies across industries. Most of them are complex, innovative, first-in-its-kind and have significant impact on local regulatory practice.
We have a deep understanding of the industries in which our clients operate and have organized our business to foster that understanding. These include a special focus on automotive, energy and infrastructure, life sciences, TMT, financial services, insurance and consumer sectors. This multidisciplinary approach enables us to identify, and even anticipate, regulatory changes, market dynamics, and trends that can impact their business transactions.
Our local capability is further bolstered by our exceptional international, and particularly cross-border transactional strength. With more than 500 M&A lawyers across six continents, our reach enables us to help with inbound, outbound, multijurisdictional, or domestic M&A, wherever a deal happens for our clients.
