We have one of the world’s leading legal practices, with the industry knowledge to guide you through any local or global challenge you may face.

For more than 100 years, manufacturing, engineering and distribution companies have looked to us for creative solutions to their legal challenges – including business, financial, regulatory and intellectual property issues, as well as with their disputes. We have helped a number of traditional, single-line manufacturers diversify their offerings and expand into markets across the globe.

A dynamic company needs dynamic lawyers – not just to stay competitive, but also to lead the way in establishing footholds for expansion around the world.

Our connected approach enables us to scale our services across practice areas and jurisdictions, depending on the particular needs of the client. We also ensure we understand our clients’ products, technologies and business models. As a result, clients never outgrow us – no market or regional niche is too sophisticated or unique for our cross-border legal teams. Our comprehensive experience allows us to understand not only the legal dynamics of the countries in which we practice, but also our clients’ specific business goals and presence in those regions.
