The firm offers a full range of commercial legal and tax services, combining business acumen with academic excellence. To better respond to clients’ needs, BonelliErede offers support through a number of specialised focus teams, which bring together the legal expertise of its professionals from various practice areas (administrative law, banking and finance, capital markets, commercial litigation, competition, corporate and M&A, criminal law, employment, EU law, IP, project finance, restructuring, structured finance and tax). The focus teams are organised by sector and practice area and pool their individual legal expertise and in-depth sector knowledge to offer clients assistance with all aspects of their businesses.

BonelliErede currently has four strategic outposts: Cairo, Addis Ababa, Dubai and Beirut. Established in 2016, Cairo and Addis Ababa are the hub for the firm’s development plans in Africa - to which Dubai was added in 2017. Effective as of 1 July 2018, BonelliErede’s presence in Dubai boasts the integration of Tribonian Law Advisors (TLA), a regional boutique law firm that has been providing clients expert legal advice in M&A, corporate finance and corporate and commercial law throughout the Middle East through its offices in the UAE and Lebanon. As part of this integration, BonelliErede also has a new outpost in Beirut.
