International Business Transactions
Today’s global marketplace offers a plethora of opportunities but can also introduce significant challenges and risks. Our international business attorneys can help clients in identifying and managing these risks.
International Joint Ventures
Sometimes the best way to enter a foreign market is to collaborate with a local partner. Each of these relationships is unique and must be reviewed carefully and deliberately, and the international joint venture agreement is a critical part of defining and managing the relationship with foreign partners.
Foreign distributors can help companies gain access to a new market abroad. However, if not property investigated and managed, these relationships can be more trouble than they are worth. A clear and comprehensive international distribution agreement is necessary to protect companies and avoid potential disputes with foreign distributors.
When a company wishes to grant foreign partners the right to produce or market its products in a foreign country, an international license agreement is critical to controlling the foreign licensee’s actions and protecting their own intellectual property.
Once a website is launched or mobile application is uploaded to an app store it becomes available to the global marketplace. As such, companies operating online need to address the issues presented by international ecommerce transactions.
Often a company will decide to broaden its international presence by either launching a subsidiary in a foreign county or by acquiring an existing foreign enterprise. This foreign direct investment has a range of benefits and risks, and our international business attorneys can help identify and manage the risks implicated by foreign direct investment.
International Development Agreements
Software and product development is a truly global industry. Having a solid international development agreement is important to protecting intellectual property and avoiding future conflicts with developers, and our international business attorneys have the experience to help negotiate an effective international development agreement.
International Technology Transactions
Technology is mercurial by nature, which means it is easily transferred, licensed and sold worldwide. But the unique character of technology also creates a range of risks that require experienced technology counsel to adequately identify and address.
International Trade Law
Both U.S. and foreign national governments have an interest in regulating international payments, collecting customs duties, and overseeing transfers of sensitive technology. Our international trade team members help clients navigate a range of domestic and foreign international trade laws.
International Intellectual Property Protection & Enforcement
Protecting intellectual property in the U.S. is important, but in a global marketplace, companies need to look beyond our borders to ensure their intellectual property rights are protected in key foreign markets.
International Arbitration and Litigation
Contracts and intellectual property registrations are useless without the ability and will to enforce them, and international transactions create unique issues regarding enforcement and dispute resolution involving foreign vendors, partners, and customers.
