We advise the world’s leading industrial sector clients on their most critical business issues and help them navigate the rapidly evolving industrials landscape.

The industrials sector is being revolutionised by new, highly efficient technologies and production methods, particularly when it comes to digital analysis and data connection across the entire production supply chain, often in turn feeding machine learning and AI systems. At the same time, new collaborations are being formed as businesses search for innovation, ESG resilience, competitiveness, diversified supply chains and growth.

In this rapidly changing environment, we support our clients with executing complex public and private acquisitions, JVs and investments while strategically managing and defending their intellectual property, navigating global regulations, and dealing with cross-border risks and crises, including in the evolving landscape of antitrust and FDI enforcement.

Our expertise encompasses a wide range of areas, including M&A, JVs, IP, antitrust and regulatory compliance (including foreign direct investment advice, foreign subsidies regulation and others), ESG matters, commercial contracts, tax matters, and many others. With our deep industry knowledge, we provide valuable guidance to industrials clients, ensuring they can make the best strategic decisions and achieve their business objectives.

Our clients include groups active in heavy industry, automotive OEMs, chemicals producers, conglomerates and trading houses, as well as machining, paper, wood, building material and packaging businesses. By partnering with us, industrials clients are kept up to date with the latest market practices as well as industry trends and regulations and can capitalise on opportunities arising from new technologies and collaborations.
