Freshfields advises leading multinational corporations, financial institutions, governments and investors across the world.

We do what we do better than any other firm – we execute on the most complex cross-border transactions; deal with the most challenging multijurisdictional litigations and global investigations; handle arbitrations and regulatory issues that involve multiple countries; and provide financing solutions that give our clients ultimate flexibility.

Our offer is simple – we deliver the best advice and the best service wherever our clients need support. We build teams of the highest quality in any country, adding value and reducing inefficiency. Our US partners have decades of top-level experience in key disciplines for US and global organizations – M&A, antitrust, finance, capital markets, employment, international arbitration, litigation and tax.

Our US partners work seamlessly across borders with their peers in Europe, the Middle East and Asia, delivering domestic US advice of the highest quality and tackling the most challenging cross-border issues with an unrivaled international platform.

Each country partner also knows the leading local lawyers through our StrongerTogether network, which comprises more than 300 firms covering almost 200 jurisdictions.
