Practice/Industry Group Overview
International business is no longer a separate category; virtually all business is global in one way or another. Nexsen Pruet has the experience, knowledge and relationships required to counsel businesses and individuals on a wide range of legal issues, from day-to-day employment matters to navigating complex international trade regulations.
Our International Law Group has represented companies from more than dozens of countries doing business in the United States, as well as many U.S. companies operating or expanding overseas.
Relationships and knowledge
Nexsen Pruet is also the Carolinas member of two global networks of independent law firms — Mackrell International and LAWorld — providing us quick access to attorneys in major business centers around the world. Nexsen Pruet is also affiliated with Yangtzejiang Legal Network, an association of Chinese attorneys that helps provide our clients legal insights in this major developing market.
These alliances provide our clients “boots on the ground” and in-depth local knowledge of the law in dozens of jurisdictions. In addition to these legal networks, we have attorneys and support staff who are fluent in French, German, Italian, Portuguese, Russian and Spanish.
Our International Law Group draws on Nexsen Pruet’s many practice areas to provide specific legal knowledge and experience to solve client problems.
