Asia

International service, local knowledge.

Your Husch Blackwell Asia client service team combines extensive trans-Pacific experience and local law knowledge with a reliable network of top-notch local counsel to deliver seamless services throughout Asia.

We deliver “one firm” service — the same that you expect for U.S. projects. Your lead Husch Blackwell attorney serves as a strategic advisor and single point of contact and coordination, as well as an effective intermediary to translate the nuances of international laws into advice that is easily understood and practical for U.S. businesses. Regardless of the jurisdiction and the Husch Blackwell team member managing your project, you can always expect to communicate with your counsel in the language, at the hours, and in terminology and concepts that are best for you.

There is significant value in turning to your trusted U.S. counsel for your Asia needs even when local counsel ultimately must be engaged. The engagement of multiple law firms in various jurisdictions can lead to inconsistent results. A law firm engaged on a one-time basis in a foreign country may not have the knowledge of a U.S. client’s business and demands or the accountability to deliver results. Turn to Husch Blackwell for your cross-border project management, and we’ll put our diverse talent and skills to work for you.

We deliver superior value for clients in the following ways:

  • Effective management and coordination of local firms to save time and money
  • Insight into the interplay of foreign law issues and U.S. law issues (e.g., Foreign Corrupt Practices Act (FCPA), Patriot Act, export compliance)
  • Knowledge of your transaction model and ability to replicate it in Asian jurisdictions
  • Reliable and extensive local counsel network
  • Sensitivity to culture differences
  • Significant portion of the work handled from U.S. offices to maintain quality at a reduced cost
  • Substantive knowledge of Asian local laws and language
  • “Translation” of local law issues for clients’ understanding
