At Lewis Silkin, we operate a number of country desks in order to co-ordinate our activities relating to key jurisdictions.
Our clients benefit from having support that is tailored in to their needs by experts that speak the local language, have developed extensive networks and understanding the cultural and legal landscapes.
As one of the most active examples, our French Desk provides a dedicated service to French companies wishing to develop their business in the UK. Through its network of corporate finance advisers and law firm contacts, the French Desk can also assist our UK and international clients wishing to develop their business in France.
Recognising that clients need access to lawyers who understand their local issues but who can operate across borders, the Russian speaking lawyers at Lewis Silkin have established a Russian Desk (also covering Baltic, CIS, Georgia and Ukraine) which brings together a team of lawyers who have a mix of legal, commercial and language skills, and who understand the challenges that clients from these regions face.
