Briggs and Morgan has counseled global private and public companies across a wide array of industries in connection with the structuring, negotiation and consummation of complex commercial transactions. We have successfully closed deals throughout the United States, Central and Eastern Europe, Asia, Central America, the Caribbean and Canada.

We often work with local foreign counsel on international transactions to seamlessly assist clients in navigating foreign tax and antitrust issues, as well as Foreign Corrupt Practices Act (FCPA) compliance and foreign patent and trademark protection.

Our M&A attorneys assist clients in cross-border transactions involving:

Sales and Acquisitions. Briggs attorneys understand the nuances of selling and acquiring foreign businesses and stand ready to assist with unique foreign due diligence considerations, antitrust analysis and filings, FCPA compliance issues, and complex international tax issues. 

Joint Ventures, Strategic Alliances and Foreign Expansion. Briggs assists clients in expanding their operations and sales into foreign markets, i.e., selling product through sales representatives or distributors, warehousing product in foreign jurisdictions, opening sales offices or manufacturing facilities in foreign countries, and entering into strategic alliances with foreign partners. Briggs teams with local counsel and professionals to advise on local and international tax issues and tax structuring, employee hiring and termination laws, and foreign accounting and financial reporting standards. We also advise and negotiate financing, distribution and sale contracts, and complex licensing agreements including intellectual property protection.
