INTERNATIONAL TRANSACTIONS

Thompson Coburn attorneys represent clients with transactional and tax issues that arise out of their international operations as they require assistance in structuring their foreign business activities (start-ups, acquisitions, joint ventures, distributorships and sales agencies) and in addressing tax and other concerns particular to international transactions. For example, the merger or acquisition of U.S. companies by foreign entities may raise national security concerns. Issues concerning Foreign Ownership, Control or Influence (FOCI) should be examined and addressed, as necessary, in advance of any closing. In addition, the parties to the transaction should consider whether there are national security issues that should be reviewed by the Committee on Foreign Investment in the United States (CFIUS) and its constituent agencies.
