Miller Canfield has long represented clients with their international transactions and disputes. The firm is a member of the Legal Alliance of the Americas, which is composed of market-leading independent law firms throughout North America and South America, and currently brings together more than 400 lawyers in 14 cities across the Americas.

The firm has developed a niche specialization in international law ever since our global footprint expanded in 1989 when Poland’s Solidarity movement leader Lech Walesa retained our firm to represent the Solidarity 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. 

Our global presence and the firm’s multilingual lawyers enable Miller Canfield to help clients continue to navigate international markets and jurisdictions in their international transactions and business operations, including inbound and outbound foreign direct investment, joint ventures, mergers and acquisitions; and commercial transactions.  Our firm regularly advises clients on compliance and regulatory matters involving U.S. export controls, customs issues, the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act, and data privacy. 

The firm also regularly represents corporate clients involved with international and cross-border product safety, intellectual property, and tax issues. Through our firm’s membership in the Employment Law Alliance, we provide our international clients with worldwide resources for workforce, labor, immigration and expatriate matters. Of course, when legal disputes arise, the lawyers in the firm’s International Dispute Resolution Section represent clients in courts and arbitration forums around the globe.
