About the Firm

SLV was founded on a handshake in 2019 as a group of lawyers dedicated to providing advice and expertise at the highest levels. We are dedicated to achieve extraordinary results following the distinctive vision of our founders – a cohesive team of lawyers intensely focused on solving our clients’ most important problems. We have a broad experience in various fields of corporate and securities law, international arbitration, real estate, project finance, fintech, high stakes litigation, TMT and banking law. We handle sensitive investigation and litigation matters and corporate restructurings, and counsel boards of directors and senior management in critical situations. We deliver groundbreaking and innovating solutions aimed to have a dramatic impact on business and law.

Our distinctive structure defines our approach. We maintain a ratio of associates to partners significantly below that of other firms. We focus on matters that require the attention, extensive experience and sophistication of our partners and as a result we limit the number and type of matters we undertake. We work together on a task-force basis on all of our matters, bringing to bear the requisite mix of people and expertise across practice areas.

Our structure and approach attract talented and entrepreneurial lawyers, who enable us to achieve excellent results for our clients in complex and critical matters. The diverse backgrounds, professional experience, qualifications and linguistic capabilities enhance our ability to handle international and local matters. We have an integrated, firm-wide management structure and common professional culture emphasizing dedication, excellence, integrity and responsiveness, all to ensure a uniformly high quality of legal work.

We are thought leaders.
