Our international expansion team and “Europe in a Box”

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 setup 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 setup 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 who value the simplicity of the model and the cost predictability. We offer these packages in most EU countries and we’ve also extended the fixed fee setup model into the primary international business destinations in Asia.

We are international business advisers

With the skills and experience we have advising companies on growth into new markets, we understand the vast array of issues companies need to address in order to be successful abroad. We have a broad network of contacts, strong connections with service providers and leading trade organizations who can advise on all aspects of international setup in the key markets for global business. Our deep legal expertise and tech industry knowledge enables us to be not just lawyers, but also trusted international business advisers.
