International

Helping navigate business without boundaries

Bilzin Sumberg’s experienced, multi-disciplinary International Team is ready to help whether it’s advising a Mexican company on the acquisition of a U.S. company, helping a Chinese public company with complex international tax planning issues, or working with a U.S.-based client in connection with purchasing commercial property in Brazil. We represent domestic and international clients ranging in size from individual investors to large, privately-held and publicly-traded companies.

Our firm has a strong emphasis on Latin American markets, but our reach is decidedly global, with practices ranging from International Inbound Transactions, International Outbound Transactions, International Taxation, Mergers & Acquisitions, International Estate Planning, International Arbitration and Alternative Dispute Resolutions, and Real Estate Development and Construction. Bilzin Sumberg attorneys work across practice groups to assemble teams that meet the specific legal needs of their clients. 

Our international attorneys are fluent in multiple languages and are intricately familiar with various business and social cultures throughout the world. As a resource for entrepreneurs, investors and business professionals interested in what is fueling Miami, both economically and culturally, Bilzin Sumberg launched Nuevo Miami, a Spanish language publication in 2015. Nuevo Miami focuses on sharing Bilzin Sumberg's ground-level insights about the gateway city's continually growing opportunities for foreign investors and expanding global significance as an international center of commerce.

Furthermore, we are members of TerraLex®, a network of more than 155 leading independent law firms from over 100 countries. Together, we help create an environment where businesses can expand and thrive – uninhibited by boundaries.
