International Business

Our international business attorneys service the needs of international investors, businesses and individuals alike, seeking to locate operations in/or trade with the United States; in addition to serving the needs of U.S. companies that are setting up operations internationally and/or engaging in international trade.  With an office in Hamburg, Germany, we are perfectly situated to assist U.S. companies in Northern Europe.  We have a wide network with lawyers around the world, particularly in Europe, which we have established through years of continued work with European clients and our foreign attorney intern program.
