Investors and businesses looking to enter new markets, particularly in new countries, face a series of unknowns and challenges. At M&R, we understand that foreign direct investment requires an evaluation of conditions at the local level, including identification of relevant legal requirements and policies—this in order to facilitate decision-making and position the serious investor for success.
Our foreign direct investment team provides legal support and counsel no matter the form of market entry, be it a greenfield project, direct acquisition, joint venture, licensing and the like. We know that, in most cases, our clients entering new markets face issues very similar to those they confront when starting up new businesses. These clients—individuals and entities, big and small— rely on M&R for guidance. They also lean upon us for our cross-border litigation and arbitration expertise when foreign investments become the subject of disputes and lawsuits.
For these reasons, we’ve positioned ourselves not unlike an in-house team, offering a full suite of transactional, litigation and consultative services. The M&R difference is our vast experience doing business across borders and continents and a collective knowledge of differing legal systems that’s unmatched.
