International PracticeWe have represented multinational clients in commercial disputes for more than 30 years. Our representation of European clients in state and federal courts in the United States has focused largely on complex, high stakes international banking and international investment disputes. For example, we represent more than a dozen European banks in disputes arising out of the Madoff bankruptcy. We also have represented European and Asian entities in negotiation and preparation of distribution agreements, joint venture agreements, leases, loan agreements, employment agreements, supply agreements and termination agreements. In addition, we have advised foreign clients entering U.S. markets in organizing their domestic affairs and operations to avoid business disputes.
In representing multinational clients, we work closely with their overseas counsel, outside consultants, and specialists. Working together, we aim to eliminate cultural barriers and thereby forge a winning strategy that addresses the client’s business concerns. We have developed relationships with leading lawyers in Paris, London, Geneva, Frankfurt, Brussels, Munich, and other European cities whom we call upon when the matters we are handling require knowledge and analysis of European law.
