“Experience. Relationships. Value.”

Based in Washington DC, HSM is a boutique law firm that advises clients working in some of the most challenging legal environments across the globe.


What makes HSM distinct?





Each of our partners has been structuring and documenting transactions for more than 25 years, across a broad range of sectors, geographies, and parties. In the past five years alone, HSM has closed over 50 transactions in 30 different countries totaling $1.4 billion in capital commitments. Our experience allows us to solve problems practically and close deals efficiently.




We work for and across from major providers of capital to the emerging markets, including development finance institutions, export credit agencies, commercial banks, and private equity funds. We know their policies, processes, and personnel. Our global network of relationships also extends to financial advisers, placement agents, and local counsel.




HSM offers exceptional value. Our partners are actively involved in each representation; we staff matters leanly; our rates are lower than those of large firms. As a result, HSM offers a combination of quality, responsiveness, and value that few other firms can match.
