How can we help you where multiple jurisdictions are involved?
We help our clients with their multijurisdictional matters by: (i) having a single point of contact in London for a co-ordinated approach to any legal matters connected with their cross-borders projects; (ii) minimising regulatory and contractual risks; and (iii) reducing the time spent by management or by their legal departments in the legal aspects of these projects.
Telecoms, Technology and Media (“TMT”) projects are often cross-border in nature. Rolling out an international communications infrastructure or just launching an app or an online service is likely to entail legal (including data protection & retention) implications in many diverse jurisdictions.
Obtaining, managing and co-ordinating advice on a range of legal issues covering multiple jurisdictions can be a major challenge. Time is a valuable commodity to many of our clients’ fast evolving businesses, who can avoid the duplication involved in locating then bringing up to speed leading local lawyers (for each relevant issue) in each country. This may be why various large or medium size international companies have overcome such challenges by engaging the Preiskel team in London, who then provide a one-stop-shop for legal issues across the globe.
Our international team has considerable experience in managing and coordinating multi-jurisdictional legal projects for blue chip international clients as well as for owner-managed clients. Whilst Western Europe is our home patch, in fact we assist clients with their legal and regulatory issues across the globe.
International team of regulatory and commercial lawyers headquartered in the City
In addition to our leading English communication solicitors, Preiskel’s TMT lawyers qualified in a wide range of jurisdictions including Germany, Spain, Italy, New York, Brazil, South Africa, Israel, India and Mauritius with most of them also qualified in England.
However, unusually for a law firm, Preiskel’s international team of lawyers are primarily based in the City of London, providing a highly co-ordinated and consistent approach. The firm’s international mind-set has proved of considerable advantage to many clients, as the firm assist them to oversee their local legal work in foreign jurisdictions, rather than engaging directly with a local firm in each jurisdiction.
