All the world’s a marketplace today, and companies who once succeeded with a domestic integration structure are increasingly reliant on overseas suppliers and customers. At the same time, foreign-owned companies are finding operations within the U.S. desirable for a host of reasons, and in these cases, expansion beyond your national borders carries the risk of wide-ranging legal problems in the courts of other nations.
Protecting our clients everywhere they do business is the core purpose of Alston & Bird’s International Litigation Team. We represent non-U.S. clients in domestic litigation matters and U.S. clients in litigation outside the U.S., as well as in international arbitration and other alternative dispute resolution. Our lawyers possess the language skills to operate in courtrooms and at negotiating tables around the globe, but more importantly, we have the skills, experience, and contacts to assist in any adversarial matter, anywhere in the world. We help clients avoid costly and potentially damaging litigation through risk-management assessments and regulatory compliance reviews and have a strong track record of heading off potential litigation through carefully crafted pre-litigation strategies.
When a courtroom is unavoidable, our litigators deftly navigate international discovery requirements and legal proceedings. We maintain strong relationships with some of the best law firms in the world and work closely with exceptionally qualified local counsel to achieve cost-efficient and optimal outcomes for our clients in any jurisdiction. Effective representation abroad is not a given for companies in an increasingly global economy. Alston & Bird bridges the divide, providing a measure of certainty in an uncertain world.
