Europe

While one of long established firms in Europe, we have been named and recognised as one of the most innovative law firms in the region.

Europe is now facing significant political and trading shifts arising from national elections and the implications of the UK leaving the European Union (EU). We are already helping clients understand and meet the challenges of Brexit. Whatever lies ahead for Europe, it will remain an important international hub for our clients and key to our integrated global offering.

More than 1,600 lawyers work from our European offices, offering the full range of commercial legal services. We break down barriers by speaking all together more than 30 languages and by combining local knowledge with international perspective. Expert in handling multi-jurisdictional common and civil law matters, our teams advise global companies investing and operating in Europe, as well as European companies needing advice on local, regional and international matters.

Complementing our own offices we have a network of preferred law firms across Europe, so we can serve you throughout Western and Eastern Europe and in Scandinavia.

We operate in the following locations:
