Investing in Europe


Written on 10 May 2016

Osborne Clarke’s dedicated team of international expansion specialists are the ideal partner for companies expanding into new markets. We are among the leaders in global expansion legal advice and have decades of experience supporting US companies on their worldwide growth, beginning with the establishment of our Silicon Valley office in 2000. Over that time we’ve advised over 500 US companies in establishing operations in Europe. From there we support companies on their growth further into Europe and beyond advising on issues such as data privacy, employment law and regulatory issues across different jurisdictions. With our keen focus on the Digital Business sector, our team understands the world of technology and the issues start-ups and the leading global technology companies face as they expand around the globe.

Our international expansion team is based across our US offices and throughout Europe providing international legal advice within the time zone of the most important regions for international companies. Our experts cover the key services US businesses need to set-up in new markets including corporate, employment, stock options, commercial contracts, data protection, tax, real estate and beyond. The team supports new market entry via a fixed fee set-up package, “Europe in a Box”, that includes the basic legal needs most companies need to get up and running efficiently in the market. This service has been incredibly popular with fast-growing, venture-backed technology companies across the US. We offer these packages in most EU countries and we’ve also extended the fixed fee set-up model into the primary international business destinations in Asia. 

With the skills and experience we have advising companies on growth into new markets, we understand all of the elements companies need to be successful abroad. We have a vast network of contacts, strong connections with service providers and leading trade organizations who can advise on all aspects of international set-up in all key markets for global business. Our deep legal expertise and technology industry knowledge enables us to be more than just lawyers, we are also trusted international business advisors.
