International

In today’s economy, all business is global.

With each new jurisdiction, companies are faced with vastly different legal systems and complex considerations. Succeeding in diverse industries and jurisdictions requires a highly experienced legal team.

Trusted Counsel works with domestic and foreign businesses seeking to establish and grow a U.S. presence.

Our services include educating non-US-based clients on the nuances and opportunities for establishing and expanding their U.S. businesses. We provide counsel around critical areas like identification of the appropriate jurisdiction, organization and set up, “Americanizing” contracts and other key agreements, employment assistance, and intellectual property protection.

Foreign companies, multinational corporations, and institutions trust us to represent them in acquisitions of U.S. companies, and we also offer representation for United States companies that have been sold to foreign buyers or are acquiring businesses outside of the United States.

Our Intellectual Practice team is experienced with inbound trademark work, whether expediting filing in the United States from registration in a foreign jurisdiction or overseeing a new filing in the U.S. Our attorneys advise on protection of copyrights and trade secrets as well as providing strategic assistance with patents and other intellectual property portfolio matters.

We are part of your international team, working to solve complex legal issues wherever you’re doing business.
