Business success on an international level means success for both the employer as well as the employee and requires legal counsel with a worldview and the agility to manage expatriating and repatriating talent in every corner of the globe. We are adept at handling the basic processes, and drafting and implementing expatriate policies and procedures to ease employee mobility, as well as the more complex issues involved in negotiating multinational transactions and staying ahead of potential international disputes. We help U.S.–based and non–U.S. clients navigate through the document maze of work visas, work permits, employment agreements, and plan and direct logistics.
