The firm has a long track record of advising on transactions in Africa, the Middle East, Turkey, Central and Eastern Europe and the CIS on behalf of sovereign, financial institution and energy-sector clients. One client remarks that the practice, led by David Cohen is a 'very dedicated team and pleasant to work with'; Cohen and key partner Nick Hayday are 'very experienced'. Among the firm's other 'pragmatic, user-friendly and hands-on partners' are US securities specialist Cameron Half and key advisor to trustees, security agents and other agency service providers Catriona Lloyd. Matthew Sapte is also recommended for Sharia-compliant and structured debt transactions.
