Because many of Sequor Law’s lawyers are bilingual or trilingual, as well as multicultural, they are able to deal comfortably with the legal environments encountered in any jurisdiction across the globe. This allows the firm’s lawyers to advise clients on strategies in the region that often require sensitivity to public relations, political considerations and local cultural issues.
