“This is a great day in the history of McGuirewoods,” said McGuireWoods Chairman Richard Cullen. He said the firm has sought for some time to expand its overseas reach with a London office.
McGuireWoods has about 900 lawyers in 17 offices, but its only overseas outposts are in Brussels and Kazakhstan.
GMR has especially strong ties with Nordic countries, Russia and the countries of the former Soviet Union. Much of its practice involves cross-border mergers and acquisitions, tax planning, litigation and dispute resolution.
