Cheng Cohen assists both US and foreign companies in commercial transactions around the world. Whether a US-based company looking to expand internationally or a foreign-based company interested in expanding in the US, Cheng Cohen lawyers are uniquely positioned to assist in developing a business-driven and solutions-oriented legal component for their clients’ expansion activities.

Cheng Cohen lawyers draw on decades of big-law and in-house experience that has afforded them the opportunity to assist clients in formulating development strategies and in structuring, negotiating and documenting cross-border transactions covering over 50 countries in every region of the world.  Clients benefit from legal advice that is truly business-oriented from lawyers who have had front-line business responsibility and who have a keen understanding of the role cultural and legal differences play, not only in the negotiation process but also in the way in which multi-jurisdictional contracts are structured.  In the international group, our mission is to help our clients create a global footprint – one that incorporates the flexibility that a successful, long-term vision demands and that best positions the client to pursue that vision. Here’s just a sample of what we do:

  • Negotiate and document global licenses of trademarks and other intellectual property
  • Assist US-based franchisors in negotiating master franchise and area development transactions
  • Facilitate operations in the US by foreign companies
  • Protect intellectual property globally
