Today’s global marketplace hinges, in large part, on the ability of companies to expand internationally. To do so effectively, growing global companies need legal counsel that has the international business experience and connections to create relationships that comply with diverse jurisdictional laws and regulations, while promoting business interests. With a strategic focus on global markets and trade, we work to ensure that cross-border transactions meet our clients’ objectives anywhere in the world.
Our team has represented companies of all sizes in more than 100 countries on a wide range of international transactions, including mergers and acquisitions, joint ventures, technology transfers and licensing, debt and equity financing, contracts and commercial agreements and international trade compliance matters.
Our diverse practice includes representation of U.S. companies investing abroad, as well as non-U.S. companies investing in the U.S. We also have been involved in transactions involving only international companies.
Given the importance of an efficient tax structure to any international transaction, we work closely with our International Tax team to devise the appropriate corporate and tax structure, taking into account all domestic and foreign laws and options. By collaborating with our International Tax team to determine the appropriate location and business formation for the structure, we are able to create the optimal international business venture for our clients.
