With the increasing growth of the global economy, providing full-service assistance to clients necessitates an ability to provide high quality global services. The International practice area has readily embraced this challenge. 

The firm provides seamless assistance (both outbound and inbound) in all types of cross-border transactions spanning a wide variety of industries, including aerospace, agricultural, manufacturing, telecommunications, food and beverage, brewing, agrochemical, petrochemical, apparel, information systems and electronics. Members of the International practice area have counseled clients in transactions all over the globe, including Europe, Latin America, the Caribbean, the Russian Federation, Middle East and Asia and the Pacific Rim (especially China, South Korea, Hong Kong, Australia, Taiwan, Japan, India and Thailand).

The International practice area’s primary focus is assisting U.S. companies with a wide variety of overseas global transactions ranging from the negotiation and formation of contractual arrangements to the complexities involved in establishing direct investments overseas. The firm regularly helps clients with financial transactions, intellectual property protection, global management, taxation and cross-border insolvency issues.  Another key focus is international trade and compliance, where the practice area's lawyers handle trade remedy actions before the Court of International Trade, as well as customs regulations, export controls and trade compliance.

When a foreign company is considering establishing an operation in the United States, the firm's international lawyers provide important counseling to identify domestic legal issues and provide advice concerning federal, state and local incentives, capital investment, intellectual property, litigation, environmental compliance, taxation, employment and personnel matters. Because the lawyers routinely practice in these areas, they are able to provide valuable assistance during this initial planning stage to avoid future problems and minimize organizational costs.

The International practice area, in conjunction with the Litigation practice group, represents clients in commercial disputes involving international legal issues in various federal courts and also has experience using alternative dispute resolution procedures, including those of the American Arbitration Association (AAA) and the International Chamber of Commerce (ICC). International lawyers not only have experience in obtaining and taking discovery abroad, but also with the various conventions that control these processes.

Armstrong Teasdale offers its foreign clients assistance in obtaining visas and temporary or permanent work permits for necessary personnel and can represent the client and its personnel with the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS, formerly the Immigration and Naturalization Service).
