A “global marketplace” is far more the norm than the exception in today’s business world. Organizations must understand, respect and monitor business across all nations to reap the full benefits of success nationally or abroad. Kilpatrick Townsend provides services for large multinationals as well as small and medium-sized companies across all industries involved in international trade, investment, manufacturing and finance.

These services relate not only to mergers, acquisitions and joint ventures, but also to international financing and securities offerings; cross-border technology transfers; cross-border sales of goods; international franchise, distributorship and sales-representative arrangements; employment; and structuring and conducting multinational operations.

We also represent clients involved in international trade investment and finance in matters that include export licensing, customs and trade regulations. Firm attorneys handle regulatory and legislative aspects, including U.S. Customs, export licensing, anti-dumping, countervailing duty and escape-clause matters. Our international offices assist clients with cross-border lending, Eurodollar equity and debt financing, interest rate and currency exchange transactions, and cross-border trade transactions and acquisitions.

In addition, we offer international arbitration services to U.S. and non-U.S. clients in international contract disputes involving distributor terminations, sales of goods, partnerships, joint ventures and development activities.
