Because your business spans borders, your lawyers should, too.

Our International Practice Group is comprised of three integrated parts: the extensive cross-border capabilities, trusted business judgments, and contacts of our lawyers; the bicultural and bilingual capabilities of our lawyers in our U.S., Mexico City and Shanghai offices; and a large, established network – decades in the making – of leading law firms throughout the world. These three parts work seamlessly together, providing clients with efficient, effective legal service, anywhere and everywhere.

Our clients range from individuals to Fortune 50 multinational companies. In the past few years we have handled transactional, litigation and regulatory matters involving more than 100 countries across the globe, in Latin America, Asia, Europe, the Middle East and Africa. Many of our team members are bilingual and have lived abroad, giving us an understanding of local business and cultural customs that benefits our clients.

We provide clients with a variety of legal services on an international basis, including:

  • Securities, finance, M&A, corporate
  • Energy/natural resources
  • Projects/project finance and development
  • Aviation
  • Real estate
  • Foreign Corrupt Practices Act compliance/anticorruption investigation
  • International arbitration/dispute resolution
  • International trade and customs
  • Franchising
  • Technology
  • Tax

Lawyers in our Mexico City office, which opened more than 20 years ago, serve as the foundation for our Americas Practice Group, which includes a permanent staff of Latin American lawyers from Mexico, Argentina and Spain, and a team of visiting lawyers from other jurisdictions, including Brazil, Colombia, Peru and Venezuela. We are able to provide clients with a unique and integrated approach to staffing projects using senior Latin American lawyers based in our U.S. offices and a senior American ex-pat in Mexico City to ensure high-level responsiveness to matters on both sides of the border.

Our Shanghai office is a base to serve clients throughout Asia, including China, India, Japan, Singapore, South Korea, and Taiwan. Our lawyers help clients take advantage of the steady growth of the global economy, particularly the expansion of trade and investment between Asia and North and South America.

One of our team’s strengths is also having strong and lasting relationships with top lawyers our clients can trust in other foreign jurisdictions. In addition, we can rely on our affiliations with World Services Group and in Techlaw Group, two global networks of leading law firms that provide our clients the ability to easily access cost-effective, efficient and highly skilled foreign counsel.
