South-East Europe Lawyers

The south-east Europe (SEE) region is enjoying a revival of interest, with levels of activity not seen since pre-2008. While yields compress and competition increases in western Europe, SEE provides a wealth of opportunities - with governments, legislation and local players in alignment to make deals happen.

Our dedicated SEE team is one of few established in the UK and is made up of a variety of partners and associates who have worked and lived in the region.
