International Business

ELG advises domestic and international businesses in structuring, negotiating, and documenting cross-border transactions and activities.

We advise companies and investors entering the U.S. market through acquisition or investment in an existing U.S.-based company. We also counsel clients in connection with joint ventures, distribution, and licensing or partnership arrangements. We apply sophisticated knowledge of U.S. market practices and advise on establishing tax efficient structures. We collaborate with overseas counsel to select, negotiate and document transaction structures that meet business objectives while offering necessary protections under U.S. laws.

For companies establishing new business operations in the U.S., we advise on the initial considerations for establishing an American presence, including entity formation, tax implications, employment issues, commercial agreements, intellectual property protection and real estate. To help with a smooth entry, we facilitate introductions to other professional service providers, including accountants, real estate and insurance brokers and recruiters.

When domestic clients establish or expand operations internationally, we collaborate with foreign counsel to evaluate new market opportunities for tax, corporate structuring, intellectual property and otherwise. Clients take advantage of our network of local counsel in foreign jurisdictions to ensure compliance with local laws while structuring and documenting relationships between domestic and offshore entities.
