Our multi-disciplinary, global practice is based in New York and London with disputes and transactional practitioners from Madrid, Paris, Tokyo, Beijing and Melbourne also forming part of the team.

The team boasts native Spanish and Portuguese speakers including civil-law trained lawyers from the region who have worked in private practice, in-house and for governmental institutions.

  • Finance
  • International Arbitration
  • Projects
  • Corporate / M&A
