We regularly represent U.S. and international companies on mergers and acquisitions throughout the world. We also help clients negotiate terms of sale and set up international distribution, joint venture, or licensing arrangements, as well as foreign supplier arrangements, and we advise clients on enforcing and terminating such arrangements. 

We assist U.S. and foreign clients with patent and trademark applications in virtually every country in the world. We also assist foreign companies in intellectual property compliance and protection in the United States.

We have helped clients start sales offices, distribution facilities, and/or manufacturing plants in the United States and around the world. We have also helped companies resolve disputes arising out of these kinds of arrangements.
