International - HBJ Gateley




Trusted relationships with local experts – for consistent quality worldwide

Our carefully developed ‘best friends’ network of partner law firms around the world ensures flexibility and shared values for us – while delivering trusted relationships and complete confidence for you.


We are experienced in handling the international legal requirements of any type or size of client. Whether you’re doing a deal, handling a transaction, sorting out an issue or making your first hires, we’ll provide a local expert to advise you and look after your interests every step of the way.

Having a trusted legal team at your side when you’re operating in unfamiliar territories is paramount. And it’s supremely important to us that we’re able to support you in the best possible way when you go abroad. That’s why we’ve dedicated substantial time and effort to developing deeply invested and wholly reliable ‘trusted partner’ relationships with a carefully selected number of law firms around the world – well-respected firms just like us, who share our values, ethos, proactive attitude and personal approach.

Our ‘best friends’ network allows us to connect you with local experts, who we trust implicitly to handle your specific business needs in the most effective, efficient way.

Across Europe and beyond, our close relationships with trusted partners enable us to offer dedicated local expertise from Berlin to Beijing. We have very well established connections in Far East Asia, with a particular emphasis on Japan, China, Hong Kong and Vietnam. We also have relationships across North America and since 2007 our dedicated office in Dubai has been delivering expert on-the-ground legal advice in the Gulf region.

To ensure that we continue to deliver the highest levels of quality wherever in the world you need to be, a team of partners across our firm is responsible for the support and maintenance of our ‘best friends’ network. Each member of this International team has a deep understanding of cross-market operations and opportunities, and direct experience of working in local markets.
