In our chosen sectors we compete successfully with some of the best law firms in the world. Building on our origins in ship finance, demand for our maritime work remains as strong as ever. At the same time we have seized opportunities to excel in related areas where our finance expertise has most relevance, such as energy, natural resources, transport, real estate and technology.

Underlying our sector expertise is a solid finance and investment practice, specialising in large capital assets, tax-efficient structures and cross-border transactions. As a result we are perfectly positioned to advise on private equity and infrastructure funds. We take equal pride in our comprehensive range of other services – including all corporate and commercial matters, tax, employment and regulatory law, and dispute resolution.

We have 14 offices worldwide – in London, New York, Paris, Hamburg, Munich, Frankfurt, Milan, Rome, Madrid, Piraeus, Athens, Singapore, Bangkok and Hong Kong.
