We live in a globally connected marketplace. Successful businesses regularly explore business opportunities outside their own geographic region, and oftentimes, in other parts of the world.
How can my business expand to the global marketplace?
As noted in a recent piece in The Economist, the ability to trade on a global scale has continued to grow – but the rules that guide this movement can create serious obstacles. As such, it is no surprise that businesses that take this important step into the global marketplace have questions about cross-border mergers and business sales, the strength of their contracts in other countries, protecting intellectual property across borders, and regulations that could apply to operations in other jurisdictions.
