International Law and International Trade

It is an increasingly global world and as the clients we work for have expanded overseas we have developed a range of services for the international business market.

Our experienced team help both UK businesses trading overseas as well as businesses from abroad looking to set up in the UK,  acquire UK companies, or to sell their products to a UK customer base.

In light of the recent Brexit vote we anticipate advising overseas entities on UK law as it becomes more distinct from EU law over the next few years.

How we can help businesses operating internationally

  • Where an overseas business is looking to establish a presence in the UK, we can advise on corporate structure, site finding, employment law and finance arrangements.
  • For businesses from overseas are acquiring UK companies, we can provide  UK due diligence and corporate support to overseas clients and their law firms. Because of our wide business connections we can also help these businesses identify possible acquisition targets.
  • We have a well-respected reputation for Agency and Distribution agreements, which ensure that businesses are protected when entering new markets abroad and have the best relationship with those selling their products.

  • We have extensive links with overseas lawyers in most jurisdictions, enabling us to obtain legal advice and representation for our clients from the right lawyer whatever issues they face, wherever in the world they are facing it.
  • Where a business is seeking to get involved in UK agriculture, property development or renewable energy projects as an investment or a going concern, we have an in depth sector knowledge and are able to advise on practical issues such as corporate structures, legislation and market conditions.

    Examples of our international work:

    • Representing a US law firm on the UK due diligence and English law aspects of its transactions in the UK.
    • Representing a US diverse engineering company on its first acquisition in the UK.
    • Acquiring companies with overseas subsidiaries and co-ordinating overseas lawyers on the overseas elements of those transactions.
