Hassans is pleased to announce that it has once again achieved top tier rankings in all areas covered by Legal 500 EMEA.

Amongst the remaining top tier listings are Banking and Finance (‘very strong banking practice firm with innovative individuals’), Dispute Resolution (‘litigation experience is incredibly strong, staff used at appropriate grades. The partner can be reached at any time, and proactive communication is excellent’), FinTech (‘they are unique in the market in their ability to advise on fintech and crypto activities’), Gambling Law (‘at the forefront of the latest developments in international gambling law’) and Technology, Media and Telecoms (‘very good team spirit and good lawyers who actively try to help and think along with the client’).
