With lawyers in New York, Washington, D.C., Chicago and San Francisco, our International Client Service Group is pioneering a new approach to international practice designed to meet the needs of our clients in the most cost-effective and time-efficient manner.
For foreign companies doing business in the United States, our attorneys — who are bilingual or multilingual and are trained in one or more foreign legal systems — serve as outside U.S. General Counsel, managing and supervising corporate, commercial, employment, intellectual property and, of course, litigation work. These lawyers are assisted by colleagues in their offices as well as those in Schiff Hardin’s Ann Arbor and Lake Forest locations.
For U.S. companies with operations abroad, we have developed relationships with a select group of major firms outside the United States that can assist us in representing our clients in countries worldwide. This “best-friends” approach is, we believe, the most economical, efficient way to deliver high-quality international legal services to our U.S. clients. Our foreign partners understand our U.S. clients’ need for compliance with domestic laws and regulations including, among others, FATCA, the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act, OFAC and ITAR.
