Our dedicated US group has substantial experience of working with US clients in connection with their global activities, whether on large scale multi-jurisdictional transactions or day to day operations. We are highly committed to doing business across the states.
Our US team is drawn from our European, Asian and Middle East offices to provide advice and assistance on both common and civil law matters. Our clients include Fortune 500 companies, privately held businesses, private equity firms, banks and insurance companies.
We offer the full range of legal services that you would expect from a top international law firm. We have recently advised US businesses on: fundraisings and IPOs; acquisitions, mergers and disposals; company and branch formation; regulatory compliance; labor law and employee stock plans; and intellectual property rights registration and enforcement.
UK vote to leave the European Union
As a result of the UK vote to leave the European Union, our Brexit Advisory team has picked some of the biggest commercial, operational and legal issues and focused it into a checklist.
This checklist, specially tailored for US companies, will guide the first steps to take now if you have businesses in the UK or are considering expansion into Europe for the first time.

More about our services
We frequently assist US corporations and US legal firms in all kinds of disputes in each of the jurisdictions in which we operate. This covers everything from investigations, through all forms of litigation and arbitration matters (including the use of our trial lawyers), to enforcing overseas court judgments and arbitration awards, and obtaining evidence in support of overseas proceedings. For more information, click here.
Each year the team spends considerable time visiting clients in the US to ensure we stay in touch and knowledgeable about the current issues facing North American businesses, also regularly attending major conferences and events.
We are not aligned to any one US law firm but have a number of strong non-exclusive relationships with law firms throughout the country who we work with in relation to shared clients from all over the world.
