International Business

International business activities involve many moving pieces. Agreements need to comply with U.S. and foreign laws, as well as any international trade regulations. Failure to adequately account for these laws can result in broken deals, international disputes and financial loss.

At Cantwell & Goldman, PA, we represent both U.S. companies doing business abroad and foreign companies engaging in business activities in Florida. Our attorneys are well-versed in domestic, foreign and international law. We help clients facilitate international transactions, taking advantage of the global marketplace while limiting potential liability.

The Legal, Business And Financial Aspects Of Your International Trade Agreements

The World Trade Organization and the UN Commission on International Trade Law have created influential multilateral agreements that govern how countries do business with each other. The United States is one of the most active participants in these organizations.

Before entering into an international agreement, the business, legal and financial factors must be thoughtfully and thoroughly analyzed. Cantwell & Goldman, PA, is well-poised to advice both U.S. companies and foreign companies engaged in international business activities.

Our lawyers have decades of legal experience. In addition to legal knowledge, we also have backgrounds in business and finance - attorney Michael Sjuggerud has a Master of Business Administration (MBA) in international business and many years of experience working in international business law. This experience enables us to see opportunities and potential areas of liability. We then craft international agreements that advance our clients' interests while protecting their bottom line.

We have experience negotiating, drafting and enforcing myriad foreign trade agreements, including:

  • Bilateral agreements
  • Plurilateral agreements
  • Multilateral agreements
  • Contracts involving unilateral measures
  • Secondment agreements

We also provide general legal advice regarding international trade laws and a checklist of items businesses should consider before entering into business contracts in a foreign market.
