Administrative and Legislative Overview
Recent and anticipated actions by the Obama Administration and Congress will impact businesses of all sizes, in every geographic region and representing every industry.
Bailout Plan Analysis
BakerHostetler developed a comprehensive alert that was circulated to clients and colleagues immediately after the Bailout Plan passed the House of Representatives. The alert offered detailed analysis of the Bailout Plan's provisions and nuances, focusing on the likely impact for our clients.
Comply with Maritime Law
Complex and highly specialized maritime law requires corporations shipping products by sea to constantly assess whether or not they are in compliance with the multitude of regulations enforced by numerous agencies.
Distressed Real Estate Assets
Businesses affected by the real estate and capital market turmoil require creative solutions for disposition of distressed assets, sound advice on evaluating new opportunities, and overall legal guidance throughout these turbulent times.
Employment Law Alerts
BakerHostetler's Employment and Labor Group provides frequent electronic Executive Alerts to keep employers updated on the latest information.

Mergers & Acquisitions in the United States
CCH/Wolters Kluwer/Aspen, the world’s leading publisher of legal materials, has released Mergers & Acquisitions in the United States: A Practical Guide for Non-U.S. Buyers, coauthored by 27 BakerHostetler lawyers from five of the firm’s offices. A collaborative effort (including a two-day conference during which authors coordinated and integrated their contributions into a cohesive 850 page volume), the treatise provides many real world examples drawing upon the experience of BakerHostetler lawyers in everything from international tax to intellectual property, from product liability to antitrust, international treaties and trade to immigration, customs, foreign corrupt practices, export controls, Sarbanes-Oxley, CFIUS and more. A Chinese-language version will be published during the first quarter of 2011, and a team of BakerHostetler lawyers will be discussing major issues in the treatise at a publisher’s conference in Beijing in March.
Mitigate Merger Risk
An HR Audit can dramatically improve not only your human resources function, but also your bottom line. For example, we assisted one of our FORTUNE 500 clients in reducing its annual cost of handling employment and labor matters by nearly 65 percent by improving their efficiency and reducing their risk of costly litigation.
Prepare For Disaster
Companies, and in some cases directors and officers, face tremendous liabilities when their facilities are hit with a disaster. OSHA, federal and state agencies, such as the EPA and the Department of Homeland Security can all be involved in investigation and resolution of the multiple issues involved.
Reduce Patent Costs
Corporations with multiple patents managed by multiple law firms can reduce costs and improve administration with the BakerHostetler Patent Portfolio Consolidation Solution.
