International Services

The world is flat. At least as far as international business is concerned. Regardless of geography, time zone and language constraints, lawyers need to be truly global—working with clients wherever they’re doing business.

Our approach

Our International attorneys serve in the major international markets, including Europe, Latin America and Asia, providing domestic and overseas clients with counsel informed on a wide range of cross-border transactions and trade matters.

We deliver the solution, no matter where, when or in which currency.

We work from our global offices and with a network of local counsel in countries across the globe to assure prompt, effective service. We also have international initiatives focused on areas where we don’t have offices, such as South Asia, Israel, Africa and Europe.

Lawyers from nearly all of our practice areas have an international component to their work, handling matters for clients across the world, including:

  • Cross-border mergers and acquisitions
  • International private clients and wealth management
  • Intellectual property protection (patents, trademarks, copyrights)
  • International loan and syndicated loan agreements
  • Immigration and global employment issues
  • Negotiation and drafting of commercial agreements of all types
  • Securities transactions in numerous global exchanges
  • International project finance and structured finance arrangements
  • International tax and tax planning
  • Creation of foreign branches and subsidiaries
  • International private equity transactions
  • Export issues and U.S. Foreign Corrupt Practices Act (FCPA) matters
