We like to stay on top of corporate law and M&A market developments.

We’re fascinated by the evolving trends and geopolitical influences at large in the world of corporate dealmaking. Not just from a commercial perspective, but from an academic one, too. So aside of the work we do for our clients, we take up speaking engagements in conferences, attend high-profile colloquia and seminars and publish in law reviews and in the financial press.
