The firm is organised in international practice groups, each specialising in a specific area of finance and business law. It has also formed cross-disciplinary teams to best serve the needs of its clients - fitting to the requirements of a matter, a sector, etc.

The firm’s clients include businesses, public and private sector institutions, investment funds and government bodies.

International Work:

With over 200 lawyers working outside France, Gide has a truly international presence including in New York and London where its American and British partners cover all aspects of US and English law and, in particular, international financing transactions.

The firm has a long standing full-service presence in a number of countries where the legal system is based on Roman-Germanic principles and in particular in Brussels, Central and Eastern Europe (three offices in Poland, Russia and Turkey, and some 80 lawyers), Asia (two offices in China and some 30 lawyers), North Africa and the Middle East (five offices in Algeria, Egypt, Iran, Morocco and Tunisia and over 40 lawyers).

Each one of the firm’s offices is fully integrated in its cultural, legal, economic and political context and maintains close relations with the local administrations and agencies, the key players in the market, and the international organisations and financial institutions.

The firm regularly works in close co-operation with leading law firms in the countries where it does not have offices and is a member of several international legal networks.

Gide is widely regarded as a key player throughout Africa, having advised a broad, blue-chip client base on a range of complex and challenging transactions for some 50 years. Its experience and expertise extend across the entire continent not only in French-speaking Western and Central Africa but also in Southern and Eastern Africa and in Portuguese-speaking countries.
