EUROPE – U.S. CROSS-BORDER
Our firm maintains an alliance with the German law firm of Schomerus, which is headquartered in Hamburg, Germany but maintains a global platform throughout all of Europe. With this relationship, Wong Fleming is able to manage matters throughout Europe at your negotiated rates without the need for local counsel. You will receive a Wong Fleming bill and be able to take advantage of the local knowledge and expertise of the Schomerus staff of experienced attorneys and support staff. We will personally manage your matters and use local Schomerus attorneys and support staff where necessary.
Wong Fleming provides experienced U.S. legal representation both for German and other European clients with business or personal interests in the United States and U.S.-based clients doing business in Germany and Europe. Our multidisciplinary Europe-U.S. cross-border team advises clients in a wide range of industries, including, among many others, communications, energy, aerospace, food and beverages, life sciences, manufacturing, professional services, and software and technology.
