International corporations, funds, entrepreneurs and investors put their trust in Herrick, because we view their world from every angle - from legal and operational concerns, to cultural and practical ones. We have an unrivaled understanding of the New York market, one of the international capitals of the world, yet we frequently deal with high-stakes matters around the globe. For over 90 years, we have deftly advised international clients on a diverse range of complex legal concerns, allowing them to succeed on the world stage with ease.
The lawyers in Herrick’s Israel Practice deliver comprehensive legal services to Israeli clients who pursue investment and business opportunities in the U.S. Our practice draws upon the collective strength of our corporate, tax, real estate, government relations and litigation lawyers, who use their extensive experience to guide clients through the complex legal issues and transaction structures inherent in cross-border investments. Herrick’s Israel Practice is an integral part of our broader international experience.
Our lawyers have close relationships with leading Israeli law and accounting firms, which allow for close collaboration and coordination of legal services. As a result of these relationships, we are able to confidently refer clients and contacts, and help make valuable connections when needed. We also add value, whenever possible, by introducing clients to joint venture partners, financing sources and investment opportunities. Many of our lawyers are fluent in Hebrew, able to conduct business and review documents in Hebrew, and regularly travel between Israel and the U.S. to conduct “on the ground” meetings to enhance client service.
Norway, Sweden, Denmark, Finland and Iceland are some of the most competitive economies in the world, and so enterprises from these countries are quite active in the U.S. market. Our legal team provides counsel on a broad spectrum of the law relevant to Nordic interests with respect to their activities and investments in the U.S., including real estate, REITS, cross-border and local tax, mergers and acquisitions, corporate law, litigation, intellectual property, employment and insurance coverage. Herrick’s Nordic Practice is a growing part of our broader international experience.
Cultural and business differences between each of the Nordic countries and the United States can present unique challenges for enterprises engaging in cross-border dealings. Deborah Koplovitz, leader of this initiative, is fluent in Norwegian and culturally aware, giving Nordic and U.S.-based business clients a competitive advantage pursuing regional and international business objectives.
Our successes in pioneering lawsuits brought on behalf of the Republic of Turkey to recover its looted cultural treasures provided us with the opportunity to work closely with Turkish Government ministries, agencies and officials. Because of our longstanding ties with Turkey, and the strength of our nationally- recognized real estate department, in 2012, the Republic of Turkey selected Herrick to represent it on all aspects of the development of a new Turkish Center near the United Nations headquarters in New York - the largest Ministry of Foreign Affairs project outside of Turkey.
