International Law

Growing interdependence on the world economy has changed the nature of American commerce. This dynamic requires a new approach by both United States businesses and the legal community, and the increasing importance of international trade and finance demands expertise. We serve U.S. companies doing business internationally, foreign companies with interests in the U.S. and individuals investing in the U.S. or abroad.

We provide services for international business clients on a transactional basis and as an integral part of general representation. We represent clients before all Ohio administrative agencies and serve as registered lobbyists in the Ohio General Assembly. Our services include the formation of business entities, both in the U.S. and abroad; tax planning and representation before the Internal Revenue Service and the U.S. Tax Court; mergers and acquisitions; litigation in all courts; and general business representation including contract matters, financing, employment relations, real estate purchases, sales and leasing; and trademark and copyright. We also provide specialized services to individuals for foreign investment, international estate planning and immigration and naturalization.
