The business of global business.
Our international advisory practice brings together all our perspective, experience and understanding to help multinationals, closely held private companies, sovereigns, and private clients solve problems, manage crises, mitigate risks and seize opportunities.
Our clients are engaged in international business and personal affairs around the world. We help our clients proactively mitigate and manage legal, commercial, geopolitical and reputational risks and crises, and we help ensure that what is happening in one part of the world does not negatively impact our client’s business or personal affairs in another part of the world.
International Business Diplomacy
With our international experience and understanding of international business, we are able to help clients enter new markets while steering clear of legal, commercial, geopolitical and reputational problems.
Successfully navigating the compliance requirements associated with international banking is an evidence-based process. We understand the due diligence requirements of global banks, and the enhanced due diligence requirements associated with politically exposed persons and high-risk customers. We also understand the importance of privacy. As a result, we have been able to help international banks by conducting due diligence investigations beyond the reach of compliance departments, and we have been able to help private clients and family offices open and maintain banking relationships.
Private Client Services
The needs of private clients are different from those of public corporations. We work closely and proactively with private clients, their family offices, and their private companies. For more information about our private client services, please contact the firm directly.
