Our commercial department deals with all aspects of corporate and commercial activity serving public and private companies, financial institutions, public sector bodies, partnerships and individuals.

With the strength and depth of experience, we regularly work on high-value, complex transactions with cross-border dimensions.

The private client department focus includes advising high net worth individuals on wealth structuring, will and succession, trusts, probate and estate management. Our lawyers have a proven track record in working effectively with international clients who need to implement estate planning and have considerable experience with the administration of international estates that hold multi-jurisdictional assets.
