Miller Canfield has long represented clients with their international transactions and disputes. The firm has developed a niche specialization in international law ever since our global footprint expanded in 1989 when Solidarity leader Lech Walesa retained our firm to represent Solidarity’s Economic Fund in helping to create Poland’s first private commercial bank. In 1991, we opened our first office outside of the U.S. -- in Gdansk, Poland. Since then, we have also opened offices in Shanghai, China; Monterrey, Mexico; and Windsor, Canada. We also have developed close relationships with law firms in the international commercial and financial centers throughout the world to effectively assist clients. 

To help clients continue to capitalize on the North American Free Trade Agreement and other trade treaties, Miller Canfield provides comprehensive international legal services and business counsel from offices in the U.S., Canada, the People’s Republic of China, Mexico and Poland.

The multi-lingual lawyers in our various offices help facilitate all types of international transactions, including: inbound and outbound foreign direct investment; joint ventures; mergers and acquisitions; and trade transactions. Miller Canfield represents many Chinese automotive companies expanding into the North American market. The firm represents many companies in the manufacturing, financial and technology industries doing business with European Union market. With our offices in the U.S., Canada and Mexico, we provide seamless legal advice for clients doing business throughout the NAFTA region. In addition, our experience in international law spans though many emerging markets, including the BRIC countries. Most recently, with the addition of some experienced international lawyers to the firm, Miller Canfield is expanding its Latin-America practice to major markets such as Brazil, Argentina and Chile.

For decades, Miller Canfield’s International Dispute Resolution Section has been engaged in courts and arbitration forums around the globe.  As multi-governmental and trade regulations increase, so, too, do the needs of our clients needing help with export controls, product safety, intellectual property protection, tax and litigation.  Through the Employment Law Alliance, international clients have worldwide resources for workforce, labor, immigration and expatriate matters.
