The Larkin Hoffman international transactions and compliance team advises clients in all aspects of international business, ranging from transactional matters to regulatory compliance.

Our clients include foreign and domestic businesses seeking to grow through direct or indirect international expansion, importers of products seeking advice on United States laws and regulations and exporters working to comply with U.S. export regulations and applicable foreign laws and regulations.


We assist clients in the organization and governance of foreign business operations and the operation of those organizations.


We interface with U.S. and foreign governments to assist in customs, export control, trade regulation, tax and other regulatory matters relating to our clients’ business operations. We belong to a global network of law firms that collaborate to provide comprehensive legal counsel to clients doing business internationally. Law firms in this network have contacts with consultants, for example, to assist in certifications for products, logistics or brokerage needs.


Our international team advises organizations regarding business immigration matters, including immigrant and non-immigrant visas and U.S. work authorization.


We advise clients of international business opportunities in the franchise area and provide counsel regarding compliance with international laws and regulations applicable to franchises.
