We are the first truly global law firm. We understand the challenges of the global economy because we have had a global presence from the start. Since our founding in 1949, we have been advising leading multinational and domestic companies on the issues of an integrated global market. As a community of citizens of 60 nations, we have a deep understanding and appreciation for the language and culture of business all over the world. This gives us a distinctive ability to help clients anticipate and address the nuances of local markets as they pursue their global and regional business objectives with confidence.
