The lawyers in our corporate law department are experienced in a full range of corporate, finance, and commercial transactions, as well as securities and commodity futures regulation. As an entrepreneurial law firm, we have first-hand experience of the challenges faced by our entrepreneurial clients. Therefore, in our advising we strive to craft practical structures for corporate, finance and commercial transactions, and to reduce the compliance burden of securities and commodities regulations.

Our corporate partners’ in-depth understanding of the legal, tax, and regulatory implications of cross-border transactions and investments is based on the solid foundation acquired at leading international law firms, and is constantly refined in our dynamic practice.
