Obermayer is a member of the International Alliance of Law Firms (IALF) which is an international network of select, business-oriented law firms. It was founded to enable clients to obtain global legal services from the Alliance’s individual Members. The common aim of the member firms is to combine positive legal advice with sound commercial judgment and litigation expertise when required.
IALF has 62 member firms in 42 countries including every state in the U.S. Accordingly, Obermayer has a built-in local counsel structure with the Alliance without the overhead, which results in savings passed on to our clients.
Local representation in a foreign jurisdiction offers many advantages. If a company is expanding into a foreign market, an Alliance member firm should be able to assist with commercial negotiations, help locate suitable premises, examine the most tax effective structures, source grants and incentives available and arrange meetings with local authorities and other professionals. All member firms can work in the English language and have a wealth of local knowledge.
Obermayer is also affiliated with the firm of Meister Seelig & Fein, LLP, located in New York City. Meister Seelig & Fein LLP is a boutique commercial law firm composed of over 30 attorneys and maintains offices in midtown Manhattan and East Brunswick, New Jersey.
