Companies that operate across borders face an increasingly complex business environment in large part because of uncertainty created by governments. Whether because of their underlying political and legal conditions, their economic policies, or their foreign policy and national security priorities, governments are affecting markets in more ways and to a greater extent than they have in the past. To combat this uncertainty, global companies increasingly must do more than overcome the traditional business challenges. They also need to address the regulatory, policy, and geopolitical risks that are realities of international business operations today.

  • Legal counseling: We advise companies on using bilateral investment treaties (BITs), free trade agreements (FTAs), and other international agreements to gain access to markets and protect their rights.
  • Political and regulatory risk analysis: We help companies evaluate threshold political and regulatory risks, so that they have perspective on markets before they enter them.
  • Government relations strategies: We draw on our longstanding relationships with senior-level decision makers in governments and international organizations around the world to solve international business problems.
  • Policy advisory and advocacy services: We help companies understand how trends in international economic policy affect their business objectives and influence the development of international rules and policies in their favor.
  • Crisis management: We help companies navigate unexpected and urgent developments that threaten their international investment plans.
  • International dispute settlement: We represent companies in enforcing their rights through investor-state arbitration and other forms of international dispute settlement.
