International firms Pinsent Masons LLP and Salans have formed a strategic alliance, strengthening the firms' global reach.
With a combined total of more than 1,800 lawyers across 18 countries, the firms have increased access to sector-specific experts with local legal knowledge. In particular, both firms are looking to collaborate in the UK and CIS regions, although still operating as independent entities and maintaining their respective offices and their own networks of referral firms.
Pinsent Masons is a full-service law firm specialising in energy, infrastructure, construction, technology and real estate work. It has a well-established presence in London and throughout the UK as well as practices in the Asia-Pacific region and a base in Dubai. They are the current Who's Who Legal award winners for Construction.
Salans provides services in banking and finance, corporate, real estate and international arbitration as its basis but also has a strong reputation in the energy and natural resources, real estate and life sciences areas.
