Our corporate division is recognized as a world leader in mergers, acquisitions, flotation, joint ventures and private equity. These are often pioneering deals. While many people associate corporate law with mergers, acquisitions and private equity, there are many other types of expertise at work here. Lawyers specializing in trust/competition, employment, pensions and incentives help companies with some of the toughest issues facing modern business.

Our finance practice leads the world's strongest financial institutions practice and advises companies, funds and governments as well as banks in their funding, hedging and investment activities. Innovation and market leadership stand at the centre of our work. Our projects team leads many of the world's most important energy and infrastructure projects.


Our commercial division offers a broad range of expertise, including litigation and dispute resolution, real estate, tax, technology, media and telecommunications, intellectual property and trusts. Most of the time, we advice corporate and financial institutions, but our trusts lawyers also work with individuals, charities and trustees.
