Multi-national transactions, cross-border mergers and global IPOs all require a deep understanding of the many ways in which people from other cultures do business. Therefore, first-hand international experience is a must and a given for our lawyers. Most of them have studied abroad or worked at major international law firms. We value cultural diversity, both as a challenge and as a commitment.
Hengeler Mueller maintains privileged relationships with leading independent law firms in Europe and the United States as well as in all other major jurisdictions worldwide. For many years we have maintained close working relationships in Europe especially with Bonelli Erede Pappalardo in Italy, Bredin Prat in France, De Brauw Blackstone Westbroek in the Netherlands, Slaughter and May in the UK and Uría Menéndez in Spain and Portugal. Extensive experience in a large number of joint matters, permanent working groups in all major areas of law across all industries, cross-secondments of partners and associates between the firms, and a compatible IT infrastructure reinforce our ability to provide seamless service from a single source and in all relevant jurisdictions. In addition, our long-established relationships to top law firms in the US continue to be a focal point of our international presence. In recent years, we have expanded our cooperation with leading law firms in China, India, Russia and other countries with rapidly growing economies. This enables us to represent our clients worldwide.
