We have particular strength in the area of dispute resolution and are able to draw upon knowledge and experience in employment issues, tax, real estate, insolvency and outsourcing.

We never lose sight of the need to apply sound commercial thinking to ensure the corporate wellbeing of our clients is served to the best advantage.

We are also adept at handling contractual problems, and we deliver the same attention to detail and commitment to quality for practices, regardless of their size or area of operation.

We work with domestic and international clients in territories across the globe, handling everything from regulatory compliance in a particular jurisdiction to cross-border restructuring and integration following merger and acquisition activity.
