4 years of Chatham Partners
"Coming together is a beginning, staying together is progress, working together is success".
This quote from the revolutionary American industrialist Henry Ford fits perfectly with our fourth birthday. In May 2016, when we started with our still small team to assemble furniture, hang up pictures, allocate telephones, clear out boxes and eat pizzas from the delivery service, a then new and now loyal client came to our firm. In all the chaos of moving in, the first real estate transaction started right away. This was followed in the same month by a major portfolio transaction, (successful) contract negotiations for an infrastructure project worth billions, and project developments in the field of renewables. We were delighted, but also a little surprised.
In the four years that followed, we not only stayed together, but were also able to gain further first-class and above all nice colleagues and quadruple the size of our team of lawyers. Together we have succeeded in winning great clients with interesting mandates.
We are grateful for this and look forward to the coming years!
