International Business

In this ever-flattening world, most businesses (especially growing businesses) find themselves involved with or touching international legal issues. The reality of the role of international law in today's businesses has driven Cowden & Humphrey Co. LPA to establish significant international expertise in order to better advise our clients.

We Can Help With Your International Goals

Our clients are looking outside the United States for current and future growth — which will continue to expand in the future in competitive worldwide markets. Our attorneys have handled transactions in more than 30 countries. Combining that experience with our strategic problem-solving approach helps our clients get the most value from their overseas activities.

We also help clients navigate more complex international ventures like manufacturing and distribution agreements, joints ventures, foreign investments and acquisitions. And where we don't have existing relationships with the local providers required to complete a deal, we know how to find and manage them.
