Cross-Border Transactions

Our attorneys routinely represent non-U.S. clients who need full-service representation in this country, as well as facilitate the legal needs of U.S. entities throughout the world.

Clients appreciate the firm’s membership in Lex Mundi, a global referral network of law firms with more than 30,000 attorneys in 100 countries, giving them access to full-service local counsel. Four of our partners hold leadership roles in Lex Mundi – in business crimes and compliance, competition and health law as well as litigation – with one serving on the international board of directors.

Our attorneys counsel clients on all types of cross-border business relationships and agreements including:

  • Mergers and acquisitions
  • Joint ventures
  • Restructurings
  • Customs/import compliance
  • Project financings
  • Management buyouts

We also have experience in advising on issues that may arise during the acquisition of a U.S. business by a foreign person, including national security reviews under Exon-Florio by the Committee on Foreign Investment in the United States (CFIUS) and foreign ownership, control or influence (FOCI) mitigation of classified businesses by the Defense Security Service.

Our in-house language capabilities include Arabic, Chaga, Chinese, Estonian, French, German, Hindi, Icelandic, Italian, Japanese, Korean, Mandarin, Marathi, Russian, Spanish, Sukuma, Swahili and Urdu.
