Giampolo Law Group recognizes that international law is in a constant state of flux and evolution. Growing security concerns and unsteady economic forecasts have prompted governments to enact new laws to protect people and their businesses. In order to be competitive in today’s economic market, companies must have an international business strategy.
However, the inherent risk in growing internationally is that a company must avail itself to the laws not only of the country in which it is domiciled, but also the laws of the countries in which it seeks to transact business. GLG’s knowledge of the state of current international law allows us to ensure our clients’ success on the world stage by mitigating the risks associated with navigating the international legal landscape.
