Denver, Colorado – LAWFUEL – Legal Newswire – The Denver-based firm of Holme Roberts & Owen LLP (HRO) is delighted to announce the establishment of HRO Grant Dawe LLP (HRO GD) in London; HRO GD is a multi-national partnership between Tony Grant and Jonathan Dawe (based in London and the founder partners of Grant Dawe LLP) and Paul Thompson of HRO’s Denver office. The formal association of HRO with Grant Dawe follows a number of years of close working relationships between partners in both firms. It will combine Grant Dawe’s successful niche corporate practice in the UK with a major US law firm with a significant presence in the United States and a strong international emphasis.
The new London office will strengthen HRO’s corporate law and securities team through the addition of Tony Grant and Jonathan Dawe to the firm and will enable HRO GD to offer a US and German (through HRO’s office in Munich) law service to its existing client base.
In addition to a strong client base in the United Kingdom, Tony Grant and Jonathan Dawe have considerable international experience, particularly in the Far East (Tony Grant having been based in Hong Kong for a number of years), Middle East (Jonathan Dawe having worked in Dubai for several years), Europe, and Africa. The combined firm will increase HRO’s depth in cross border transactions and leverage the areas of expertise that Mr. Grant and Mr. Dawe bring to the firm across a number of practice areas and will enhance the ability to service the firm’s global clients.
The existing practice of Mr. Grant and Mr. Dawe consists mainly of company and commercial transactions, including selling and buying companies and businesses, investment transactions, joint ventures and shareholder agreements, establishment of corporate structures, international transactions, and media transactions.
