International and Cross Border
Harold Benjamin can deliver legal services in both the non-contentious and contentious real estate sector in cross-border matters and can offer our invaluable experience to private investor and corporate clients.
Many of our clients have an international element to the work that they need to get done, such as carrying on business or investing in other jurisdictions. In addition, we work with foreign clients who need legal representation here in the UK, either because they are looking to expand into the UK and Europe or looking to work with specialists who can provide expert litigation support for companies in cross-border disputes.
Whether we are advising on a commercial transaction which involves carrying out due diligence, buying properties, protecting intellectual property, preparing commercial agreements and so on; or advising in an international dispute needing expert knowledge about jurisdiction, the procedural rules for enforcement of foreign judgments or the ability to draft and file complex settlement agreements, we are familiar with the technical and commercial issues that businesses need to grapple with.
Examples of cases we have assisted on include advising a Moroccan business looking to set up a flagship store in London and advising a Kenyan developer in a banking dispute. We can also assist with Brexit related matters.
Between us, we are fluent in Arabic, French, Gujarati, Hindi, Kiswahili, Pashto Punjabi, Spanish, Tagalog and Urdu. We are happy to act as co-counsel or to work with in-house teams or professionals from other jurisdictions. We have an excellent network of overseas law firms, and we are happy to introduce clients to our contacts or work with our client’s established or desired law firm.
Our international approach is totally client orientated.
