Canada, Mexico, Central, & South America

Coordinating cross-border guidance.

Husch Blackwell regularly represents clients in Canada, Mexico, Central and South America, and the Caribbean. Drawing on our breadth of experience and strong relationships with top local law firms, we advise clients across industries on export compliance, the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act (FCPA), the Patriot Act, mergers and acquisitions, distribution agreements, and other matters.

In deciding whether to directly handle a project or instead supervise local firms, we assess which option will save the client the most time and money. Regardless of the jurisdiction and the Husch Blackwell attorney managing the project, clients know they can expect to communicate with counsel in the language, at the hours and in the terminology they prefer.
