International Trade Transactions

Global Business

Blank Rome attorneys have extensive experience in negotiating and structuring international business transactions, including mergers and acquisitions, joint ventures, licensing agreements, distributorship and sales agency agreements, and cross-border secured financing transactions. 

In structuring these transactions, we seek to achieve our clients' business goals while providing mechanisms that protect them.  We also ensure that the structure satisfies the requirements of the jurisdictions connected to the transactions and that the effects of the relevant tax laws have been taken into account.  In appropriate cases, we represent clients before the Committee on Foreign Investments in the United States (CFIUS) and the FOCI Branch of the Defense Security Service. 

Blank Rome assembles experienced legal teams tailored to meet the requirements of a specific deal, for example, drawing as needed on firm lawyers skilled in the areas of finance, securities, corporate governance, employee benefits, environmental, trade, intellectual property, employment, and labor law.
