In today's global economy amid the complex interplay between various nations' laws, it is increasingly important for clients to approach their business interests from a global perspective. The BakerHostetler International team takes a multidisciplinary, long-term approach to helping clients manage and address complex international issues so they can continue to establish a successful global presence.
Our team provides sophisticated advice and representation with respect to international business transactions, mergers and acquisitions, joint ventures, international disputes and litigation, international tax issues, international intellectual property rights, customs regulations, export controls and trade sanctions and embargoes. We represent and support clients in more than 100 countries across Europe, Asia, North America, South America, the Middle East and Africa.
Clients look to us for a wide range of global business and litigation needs because we provide competent and thorough advice, we are responsive and easy to work with, and we value long-term business partnerships with our clients. As one client told Chambers and Partners, "It was the individuals that impressed us the most—really great to work with and very skilled at what they do." Another noted "All of the attorneys servicing our company showed a high degree of professionalism—they were extremely competent in their area of practice and always responsive; the work was completed in line with established deadlines; they provided proper follow-up to ensure that we were satisfied with their work; and they maintained effective communication regarding changes in laws and regulations."
The strength of our international team is enhanced by our extensive network of carefully chosen overseas independent law firms who share our strengths and quality standards and with whom we have strong and longstanding relationships. We are adept at coordinating multi-jurisdictional teams, drawing on these international law firm relationships where necessary, to manage our clients’ needs around the world. Rather than operating a number of our own overseas offices, which would restrict the choice of whom we partner with, we combine our lawyers’ experience with that of the most appropriate overseas law firm as needed, enabling us to provide our clients with advice from the best-equipped specialists with the most relevant experience in each jurisdiction, delivered in a collaborative way.
