The ease with which we travel and communicate internationally, has made it easy to underestimate the legal complexities of managing cross-jurisdictional assets and alliances.
Mishcon de Reya is perfectly placed to guide both businesses and individuals through the legal minefield of international law. Rather than participating in a formal alliance, the Firm remains independent, which facilitates the selection and retention of legal partners based solely upon recognised areas of expertise.
For businesses, our teams provide a variety of services and often manage cross-border transactions as an extension of a client’s internal management team. Other specialists act as personal advisors to individuals, choosing then dealing with overseas professionals on behalf of, and as the contact for, our client. This can even be the case where there is no UK law involved.
Mishcon de Reya New York LLP is headed by James J. McGuire and is a bespoke litigation practice, with a specific focus on white collar criminal and complex commercial litigation, including regulatory and international arbitration.
We have extensive international expertise; a large part of our business is in advising on multi-jurisdictional transactions and disputes. We remain independent, but have established links with overseas practices to best serve our clients' needs.
The Firm’s international links are as vast as they are varied and niche expertise is held in several jurisdictions, including Africa, BVI, Israel, India, Russia and the CIS . Our Fraud group founded and runs both the International Fraud Group made up of international legal fraud specialists and the Financial Fraud Group for risk and compliance officers. The Employment group established Labourlink, an international network of employment lawyers, and works closely with our immigration specialists.
Mishcon de Reya is also a member of Legalink, a unique international association of independent leading law firms located in most of the worlds financial and commercial centres, representing 62 firms and around 3000 lawyers.
