Locke Lord lawyers provide advice on cross-border transactions, regulations and dispute resolution matters around the world. Our international practice lawyers have broad experience representing U.S. clients operating and investing abroad, as well as foreign-based clients with interests in the U.S.
We are skilled in cross-border corporate transactions, including mergers and acquisitions and the development of joint ventures, subsidiaries and other investment vehicles. Our lawyers also handle customs and export controls, energy and project finance matters, franchising and licensing arrangements, advertising issues, intellectual property matters, immigration issues, and insurance and reinsurance matters. Our lawyers also are deeply experienced in multi-jurisdictional litigation, arbitration and mediation.
Locke Lord addresses both complex transactional and dispute resolution matters, as well as corporate policy, FCPA, employment and other operational issues. By working closely with our antitrust, tax and technology lawyers, we stay current with the evolving business climates, both at home and abroad.
Our lawyers are a talented, diverse, creative and multi-disciplinary team of professionals who serve as trusted advisers and strategic partners. Many speak two or more languages and several have received undergraduate or law school training in countries outside the U.S. Members of our international team write and speak on numerous international law topics and belong to relevant professional groups, such as the Customs and International Trade Bar Association, the International Bar Association and the Institute for Transnational Arbitration.
We staff international projects with lawyers knowledgeable in the areas of law required by that project, and we focus on the legal, business, cultural and political aspects of international matters. We have developed an extensive worldwide network of foreign counsel and consultants from whom we seek authoritative local legal, business and other advice. By combining our international experience with the talent and knowledge of our foreign colleagues, we are able to deliver comprehensive, cost-effective international legal services to our clients.
