We have more than 380 US-qualified attorneys across the world, who include leaders in the fields of M&A, corporate governance and defense, enforcement/investigations, antitrust/CFIUS, employee benefits, IP, tax and litigation.
We are also a clear market leader in Europe and Asia in corporate/M&A, antitrust/regulatory, private equity and tax, among others.
Combining with the knowledge, experience, and energy of the whole firm, we offer a global perspective, local knowledge, and sophisticated advice that knows no bounds. That's everything you need to take that decision quickly – and with confidence.
