We advise clients in the full range of corporate law and transactions, including U.S. and foreign government contracts; corporate and commercial finance (as well as Islamic finance and banking practices); international mergers, acquisitions, strategic alliances, joint ventures and divestitures; and other strategic investments.

When disputes arise, we work with local counsel and international arbitration tribunals to negotiate favorable settlements or pursue litigation in the appropriate jurisdiction. We also advise clients on intellectual property, tax, regulatory and compliance matters.
