We believe that knowledge of regulatory regimes, cultural customs and business practices allows us to represent clients effectively on cross-border transactions, strategic partnerships and foreign direct investments.

Flatiron attorneys have extensive experience in handling cross-border transactions and foreign direct investments, including strategic partnerships, in Latin America, Europe, the Middle East and throughout the Asia Pacific Region. We are skillful in addressing the multijurisdictional aspects and specific domestic legal issues involved in those matters in coordination with local counsel, as appropriate.

Our professionals have represented local, regional and multinational clients seeking to establish, operate and finance their business activities in the Asia-Pacific Region for over 20 years. We also assist Asian-based companies on cross-border outbound transactions around the world, including in the United States, Europe and numerous Asian jurisdictions. We represent Chinese and other Asian clients on acquisitions and investments in the United States.

Our attorneys also advise on U.S. federal securities law issues applicable to foreign private issuers, as well as additional matters those issuers should take into account when considering having their securities trade in the U.S. capital markets. We have specific experience in representing Chinese companies on cross-border listings of shares on U.S. stock exchanges.

Some attorneys in our firm are native Mandarin speakers and have extensive experience working with Chinese government bodies, state-owned enterprises and other sovereign Chinese entities.
