European Markets

Kirton McConkie’s European Markets practice takes advantage of the firm's significant international legal capabilities to assist European companies wishing to invest in, start or expand a business in America and American-based clients that wish to do the same in Europe.

The advantage for both European and U.S. clients is the range of high value legal services our international trade lawyers offer in areas such as:

  • Foreign direct investment
  • Mergers and acquisitions
  • Joint ventures
  • Development, collaborative, distribution, agency, manufacturing, licensing and employment agreements
  • International expansion strategies and transactions
  • Corporate compliance
  • Data privacy and protection
  • Securities
  • Transactional, administrative, arbitration and litigation

As outside general counsel working from the United States, companies benefit from our competitive rates and ability to streamline legal processes in America and Europe. Through a multi-faceted approach, which includes intellectual property, tax, corporate, immigration and employment, our international attorneys develop integrated legal solutions that uncover key issues and provide a thorough risk analysis. Our international attorneys also advice clients on the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act (FCPA) and foreign anticorruption regulations.

We work closely with clients in the technology, software, biotech, medical device, simulation and training, engineering, mining, energy, real estate, manufacturing and direct sales/multi-level marketing industries.
