International Business

Kerr Russell has extraordinary depth and experience in the area of international law and business. Our attorneys regularly advise clients, both in the United States and globally, on all issues related to international commerce and trade.

Our practice has expanded rapidly, in response to the demand from our U.S.-based clients, as well as those we represent outside of the country, who recognize the opportunities inherent in doing business across continents and borders.

Our attorneys represent clients in the full range of international legal issues, including U.S. investments by a foreign person or entity, business planning, international business formation, joint ventures, negotiation and preparation of agreements, coordination with foreign counsel, intellectual property licensing and protection, immigration, tax and cross border disputes.

Many of our attorneys are bilingual, including in Spanish, Mandarin and Chinese. Kerr Russell is acclimated with, respectful of, and sensitive to the local laws and cultures of our non-U.S. clients, and this knowledge informs our counsel when assisting companies to expand into foreign locations, both in the United States and abroad.  

Because of our longstanding relationships with foreign companies, we have developed a network of qualified, well respected and knowledgeable attorneys, accountants and other professionals to assist with local issues and matters specific to client needs. These connections are also beneficial when dealing with foreign agencies and authorities, in that our local contacts typically maintain professional ties, enabling us to circumvent obstacles and streamline processes, in order to conclude the transaction in a time-sensitive and cost-efficient manner.
