Hengeler Mueller’s success in representing clients across borders demonstrates that integrated teams give clients what they want: seamless handling of the transaction from beginning to end and legal advice of unsurpassed quality.


The firm’s ties with leading firms throughout the world are exemplary, widely recognised as setting the standard in international legal services. For decades, Hengeler Mueller has been working intensively with ‘best friends’ Slaughter and May (UK) in addition to Bonelli Erede Pappalardo (Italy), Bredin Prat (France), Uría Menéndez (Spain), De Brauw Blackstone Westbroek (the Netherlands) and further renowned European firms. Hengeler Mueller’s long established relationships to top law firms in the US continue to be a focal point of ist international presence. In recent years, the firm has expanded its cooperation with leading law firms in China, India and other countries with rapidly growing economies.


Together with its ‘best friends’ Hengeler Mueller has an unparalleled track record in cross border transactions, and constantly strives to raise the benchmark of best practice in global legal services. In 2021, the Best Friends group acted in 234 deals worth an aggregate of more than USD 260bn.
