Macfarlanes has been working with clients in North America and in relation to US matters for decades.
Our lawyers, many of whom have lived and worked in the region, are leaders in their fields, providing the depth and insight needed to handle complex, precedent-setting matters across multiple practices and jurisdictions. For example, we recently advised Verizon Communications Inc, a wireless carrier in the US, on its acquisition of Vodafone's 45 per cent interest in Verizon Wireless for £ 130bn – one of the largest ever corporate deals.
Our focus is always on providing practical, viable advice and solutions that respond to clients’ specific requirements, whether domestic companies, multi-national businesses with significant US interests or private individuals.
Over the years we have developed strong working relationships with many leading independent law firms across North America. The combination of our lawyers' experience with the best local law firms has proven successful and we are recognised for our ability to deliver seamless cross-border solutions across a wide range of areas including:
- Corporate and M&A
- Litigation and dispute resolution
- Private wealth
- Real estate
