In today’s shrinking world business disputes are often international. Lawyers at our firm have broad experience representing clients in significantly related litigations filed in multiple countries. In addition to our offices in the United States, we have offices in Tokyo, London, Mannheim, Hamburg, Paris, Hong Kong, Munich, Sydney, and Brussels.
Our European offices form a dynamic team of attorneys who collaborate strategically to offer effective national and cross-border litigation, arbitration, and investigation advice. We work together across cultures and time zones, on different continents and in different languages, relying on our network of offices as well as partnerships with counsel in countries where we have no office, to offer coordinated, multi-jurisdictional dispute avoidance and resolution strategies for our clients, both EU- and U.S.-based.
Our firm also has worked closely with the very best law firms in Europe, the Americas and Asia. These connections enable us to better serve the interests of our clients around the world and to gain the type of understanding of local customs, practices, courts and laws that can make the difference between success and failure. We have worked closely with the top law firms in most major international legal markets, including in litigation matters where we act as world-wide coordinating counsel.
The firm’s broad expertise in cross-border and multi-jurisdictional litigation is complemented by its similar strength in representing clients in international arbitration matters.
Other foreign clients we have represented include:
The Federal Republic of Germany; The Government of Kuwait; The Government of Chile; The Republic of Gabon and its President; Invensys, a British corporation, and its Dutch subsidiary, Baan Development; Investcorp, a Bahrain-based investment bank; Odebrecht, the largest construction conglomerate in Brazil; Opportunity, the largest investment advisor in Brazil; Hyundai Corporation of Korea; Hitachi and Semiconductor Energy Laboratory in Japan; Samsung; Sony; Credit Lyonnais, the French investment banking company; Daewo; Zurich Group; Siete Leguass, a Mexican retail company; and the world-wide companies of General Motors, Vivendi and Shell.Back to Top
