This know-how, together with our many years of experience in Central and Eastern Europe, as well as our Lex Mundi network, guarantees our clients an unparalleled level of service. At CHSH all clients are personally dealt with by a relevant partner, who, together with the client, will analyse the particular case and suggest possible solutions and strategies that will guarantee the most success. Naturally, as a direct point of contact, the partner is available at any time.
