Our history

Over 40 years of US experience. We opened in New York in 1977, Washington, DC. in 1998 and and most recently Silicon Valley in 2020.

We now have more than 380 US-qualified lawyers across the world. Among them are some of the United States' top attorneys in the fields of M&A, corporate governance and defense, enforcement/investigations, antitrust, CFIUS, employee benefits, IP, tax, and litigation.
