With 18 offices spread across 16 countries, Salans is the ultimate international law firm. Founded as Salans Hertzfeld & Heilbronn in Paris in 1978 (and rechristening itself as the more international-sounding "Salans" in 2002), the firm ranks among Europe's most prominent and most broadly dispersed law firms, with outposts in most every European Union capital from Bratislava to Istanbul. (The firm's web site has four language options: English, French, German and Russian.) The firm leapt the Atlantic, opening its New York office via merger, in 1999.
