Clients receive exceptional value by working with our international attorneys for assistance with matters in Europe, the Middle East and Africa. By combining our knowledge of your industry with an understanding of your transactional philosophy, along with our experience with local law, customs and the business climate in Europe, the Middle East and Africa, we deliver what your business needs.
Our team members travel to foreign jurisdictions frequently and work closely with local counsel when needed. Based on your needs, our attorneys may directly handle all or a portion of the work or may focus on supervising local firms, all in a manner that is efficient and delivers the most value.
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 legal needs abroad, 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 does 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.
Relationship with Pinsent Masons
We believe in client-relationship partner-led service, where one partner understands, cares for and holds ultimate responsibility for our relationship with you. This approach helps to ensure that we share learning and knowledge about you, that we deliver our services in the way that suits you, and that the advice we give fits with your way of doing business. You shouldn’t expect anything different when it comes to international advice. Therefore, international matters are coordinated through your regular client relationship partner, just like any domestic matter.
Because many clients have business relationships and legal needs in the United Kingdom, Europe, the Middle East and Australia, we have developed a unique relationship with the global law firm of Pinsent Masons. Through this relationship, Pinsent Masons' clients have access to all of our resources and offices in the U.S., and you have access to attorneys and services in Pinsent Masons' offices across Europe, the Middle East, Asia and Australia.
Your client relationship partner takes responsibility for building and leading a team that meets your needs across Husch Blackwell and Pinsent Masons, ensuring that all team members understand your business and your way of working. They will oversee progress and be your day-to-day point of contact. If you want to speak in detail with an overseas lawyer, we'll set up the call. But otherwise, you can leave the coordinating to us.
At the outset, you can receive one fee quote, including the international elements. We'll work with you to design a fee structure that fits your goals. You want clear communication on the cost for getting the whole job done – not just the parts undertaken by your local lawyers. What's more, when it's time to bill you, you will only receive one statement. And that statement will meet your usual requirements; if you want a detailed narrative, we'll provide you with all the details for both the domestic and overseas work.
