Burr & Forman

International Law & Tax

Burr & Forman represents a number of clients in international and tax law including businesses expanding operations overseas, foreign investors looking to enter the U.S., and individuals moving across the globe. We represent a variety of international clients with U.S. operations and have the capability to represent our U.S. clients anywhere.

Our experience includes representing a large number of offshore-based companies that have established operations in the Southeast. Our firm has advised a number of international clients on opening or expanding their operations in the region, and our skill at developing the most effective combination of local and state economic development incentives is a major reason why. We regularly help clients with cross-border financing, licensing and business acquisition transactions.

In addition, through our network of international professionals and involvement in the global legal organization (a leading global network of 160 law firms with 15,000 lawyers based in 100 countries), we have the ability to connect our clients with attorneys and law firms in jurisdictions around the world. Our attorneys regularly deal with such international business needs as transfer pricing analysis, the establishment of tax-efficient offshore payroll companies, and cross-border acquisitions and licensing agreements. We also regularly work with cross-border leasing and financing arrangements, particularly as our manufacturing clients establish new production operations internationally.

We assist clients with international operations and issues throughout a variety of areas including:

  • Global business & finance
  • Immigration
  • Intellectual property
  • International tax
  • Labor & employment
  • Trade & compliance
