In a global economy, disputes are increasingly transnational in nature. Witnesses and evidence can be in one country, while the litigation or arbitration takes place half a world away, under different laws and legal customs. We represent foreign companies and individuals in U.S.-based litigation and arbitration. We also manage and work with foreign counsel to represent U.S. companies and individuals in litigation and arbitration overseas. Our lawyers consistently and successfully handle litigation throughout the country for multinationals that are based abroad.

Attorneys at Kegler Brown have experience with a number of complex transnational litigation matters, including representing U.S. bond holders in a $100-million suit against the Republic of Venezuela involving extensive discovery in both Venezuela and Europe; managing U.S.-based litigation involving protracted investigations in South Korea; litigating foreign anti-dumping matters for a U.S. chemical manufacturer; and representing numerous foreign companies involved in U.S.-based litigation.

The global team at Kegler Brown also offers a diverse collection of cultural backgrounds and experiences, including a Cuban-born attorney fluent in Spanish, an Indian lawyer dual-licensed to practice law in the U.S. and in India, an Asian attorney who has traveled the world with diplomatic immunity, and an attorney raised in Indonesia and the Netherlands who studied law in England. Clients understand that these unique practice strengths are materially important in litigation that often involves witnesses, documents and evidence from all over the world.
