Global Business

In an era of ever-increasing global commerce, Michigan businesses need a source of sound guidance on conducting business abroad. Similarly, foreign companies wishing to establish a presence in the United States or form relationships with Michigan businesses need trustworthy advice on suitable business structures to achieve their objectives and on compliance with state and federal laws.

Our Global Business Practice Group is available to assist Michigan businesses in establishing new relationships with foreign customers, distributers, suppliers, or personnel. Our experts in commercial law, taxation, technology law, and intellectual property can assist Michigan companies in preparing for and pursuing global expansion, including in the areas of international trademark protection and compliance with U.S. export regulations. Likewise, we are available to assist foreign companies with direct investment in Michigan and the United States. Our legal services for U.S. market entry include establishing joint ventures, mergers and acquisitions, and advising on tax compliance, privacy, and intellectual property issues, including U.S. trademark protection. Our experts are well-versed in the requirements and processes to establish a U.S. presence or relationship with a Michigan business, including for the purposes of research and development, distribution, or sourcing of materials or services.
