Legal Advice, Consultation
M&S’ lawyers are not only multilingual but qualified to practice law in more than one jurisdiction as well. We are happy to accompany their clients to whichever we are needed in. When faced with negotiations and important decisions to be made, this can be an unfamiliar and stressful time. To minimise any such burdens, M&S strives to provide clients with clear guidance based on a combination of experience and specialist knowledge across a range of industries and businesses. Our lawyers will control the situation by drawing on substantial negotiating experience against both private and public bodies. We possess the skills to handle opponents in both more informal settings of private dispute resolution cases as well as assertively bringing their case in court. In addition to these domestic dealings, we pride ourselves on our transnational approach. Drawing on our international network of partner offices, M&S provides seamless cross border legal advice to our internationally active clients.Show more +
