Attorneys from our Business Law, Tax, Intellectual Property, Real Estate, Trusts & Estates and Employment groups team up with the skills and experience of our more specialized international practitioners to provide a comprehensive range of legal services for clients operating internationally. In addition, as a long-time active member the Law Firm Alliance, which has dozens of domestic and international members, we are able to employ our extensive network of business and professional contacts to extend our firm’s reach for the proven benefit of our clients. Membership in this network also enables Burns & Levinson to provide nationwide services for international clients doing business across the United States.
Within our International group, a number of our attorneys have developed focused practices relating to certain regions and countries including Canada, China, Europe and Israel. These practices facilitate both outbound transactions between U.S. clients and countries overseas, and inbound transactions by overseas entities and non-U.S. citizens seeking to do business in the United States.
