North American businesses face many different issues when operating internationally. Brexit, COVID-19 and US/UK trade talks will impact on transatlantic business in the years ahead.
Our North America Team work with US and Canadian corporate clients and citizens to support their business and personal needs in the UK, Europe, Middle East and Asia.
From supporting you on corporate deals to advice on immigration, employment, real estate, intellectual property, data protection and commercial contracts, we will guide you every step of the way.
Our team is connected to industry, regulators and decision makers through leadership positions with organisations such as BritishAmerican Business and the American Bar Association to stay on top of the broader issues that may affect your business.
We will help you face these challenges and embrace new opportunities with confidence, putting together a multi-disciplinary team from our own offices and drawing on our network of relationships firms elsewhere as needed.
For our UK and international clients doing business in North America, we have built strong relationships with leading law firms and professional advisers from coast to coast to provide local counsel with the right specialist knowledge wherever your business or personal ties take you.
US/UK private client services
The world is getting smaller as families become increasingly international, with assets in multiple jurisdictions. Such families and individuals require specialist advice on the structuring of their affairs.
Our market-leading US/UK private client team acts for families and family offices, successful entrepreneurs, private banks and wealth managers. We are particularly noted for our work dealing with US/UK tax planning and related issues.

Working with North American law firms
Our team supports North American law firms whose clients operate internationally, either supplementing their existing teams or advising on areas in which they do not have expertise in English law or in the laws of the other jurisdictions in which we operate.
