Central, Eastern and South Eastern Europe 


As the market leading firm across the emerging markets of Europe, Linklaters remains committed to providing premium legal advice to clients as their needs evolve.

Rapid change has taken place across the region, accelerated by the accession of many of its countries to the EU.

Governments and leading global companies and financial institutions rely on Linklaters long-standing expertise in these fast-growing jurisdictions. The firm’s leading office in Poland serves as the regional hub, but Linklaters also has dedicated experts across the firm who specialise in jurisdictions such as the Czech Republic, Hungary, Slovakia, Romania, Bulgaria, Turkey, Slovenia, Croatia, Serbia and the Baltic States. Partners across Linklaters’ global offices staff specialised desks for Turkey and other parts of Central and Eastern and South East Europe. This allows the firm to maintain an in-depth knowledge of individual markets within the overall strength of Linklaters’ global network.

The firm has exceptionally strong relationships with local law firms in countries where it does not have offices. Through its long history of operating in this region, Linklaters has developed an unrivalled track record in complex and ground-breaking corporate/M&A, private equity, banking & finance, real estate and project finance. The firm is uniquely able to unite global and local commercial understanding with successful project management.
