The firm has offices in Athens, Bangkok, Dubai, London, Frankfurt, Hamburg, Hong Kong, Madrid, Milan, Munich, New York, Paris, Rome and Singapore.

The lawyers in our International Corporate Group provide transactional and advisory services across a range of markets and industry sectors, concentrating on these that we are best known for.
Our lawyers assemble, negotiate and conclude complex and often market-leading transactions for a broad array of clients including international and domestic issuers, investment banks and corporate financiers, private equity and other investment funds, public and private companies and private individuals.
The range of matters on which we advise is equally broad and includes corporate finance and securities transactions, M&A, private equity, and venture capital, strategic alliances and projects as well as providing general corporate advise and advising on commercial agreements.
