Practice Areas: International Law & Trade

Since 1948 Herzfeld & Rubin, P.C. has enjoyed the reputation as one of the pre-eminent law firms in representing major European multinational companies in the United States and throughout the world. Our current portfolio not only reaches all European and American markets, but extends well into the Balkans, the Middle East and Asia. Today, the H&R's 150 attorneys provide legal assistance on a multitude of legal issues, from matters of transnational arbitration to the largest Romanian privatizations.

Relying on the cross-border expertise of resident Western attorneys, as well as the RMDT's exceptional entourage of Romanian attorneys, RMDT handles a wide range of matters for clients including government entities, multi-lateral and commercial financial institutions and investment banks, and multinational conglomerates involved in virtually every industry. The International Law & Trade Group represents a cross-section of all our key practice groups such as litigation, corporate & securities, tax, banking & financial services, antitrust (competition), real estate, infrastructure redevelopment & project finance and employment.

Our depth and experience in international matters allows us to deploy the most qualified attorneys to handle any case or transaction. For instance, RMDT attorneys have represented various Central European nations in proceedings before the U.S. International Trade Commission in anti-dumping and related matters. We also represent the largest German and Italian multinationals, as well as companies located in Asia and the Middle East, in regard to complex international trade issues in Central and Eastern Europe, the United States and beyond. This representation often requires RMDT attorneys to present such matters before various commissions, arbitration councils, courts of law and government agencies.

RMDT attorneys regularly advise corporations and individuals on investments and operations in their home jurisdiction and abroad, particularly in regards to taxes, equity investments, acquisitions, mergers, joint ventures, licensing arrangements, international movement of goods and services and customs and immigration matters. Often, jurisdictional differences and impediments require several RMDT offices to pool their resources and know-how to creatively structure various mergers, acquisitions and joint ventures. RMDT has further counseled various multinational clients in the establishment and operation of joint ventures in the Romanian Disadvantaged and Tax-Free Zones. Aside from successfully completing the respective transaction, RMDT attorneys are committed to further providing their international legal expertise in dealing with ensuing international disputes.
