  • We counsel clients on a broad range of areas related to international transactions and also provide industry-based advice to clients in many industry sectors in many countries.
  • Our lawyers have established working relationships with law firms in countries where we do not maintain our own offices. We refer clients to these lawyers to engage the most qualified attorneys in each country to address your international matters.

Holland & Knight, with a network of over 1,000 lawyers in offices throughout the U.S., Mexico, Colombia and the United Arab Emirates, as well as working relationships with leading law firms throughout the world, can seamlessly respond to client needs quickly and efficiently. 

Collectively, our attorneys are fluent in more than 25 languages which enables us to efficiently conduct business across international borders.  In addition, many of our multilingual attorneys were educated and have practiced law in foreign countries. We also actively participate in organizations such as the International Bar Association, the Inter-American Bar Association, the Inter-Pacific Bar Association, the International Fiscal Association, the International Trademark Association and several international chambers of commerce.

Holland & Knight lawyers work with clients on a broad range of international transactions, including international taxation matters, regulatory and government matters, international arbitration and dispute resolution, commercial and corporate transactions, international finance dealings and international commerce issues.

We provide industry-based advice in a variety of areas, including banking and financial services; hospitality; retail; entertainment; media and telecommunications; transportation; marine and aviation; construction and infrastructure projects; energy, oil and gas; mining; and natural resources.

Lawyers in the firm have invested decades of time and resources to develop well-tested working relationships with highly skilled attorneys in countries where we do not maintain our own offices. Our extensive experience working with these law firms to achieve our clients' objectives enables us to quickly and efficiently recommend and engage the most qualified attorneys in each country to address your international matters. Our relationships with these law firms are nonexclusive and independent so we are able to select the most appropriate attorneys in each situation. The lawyers we refer to are personally known to us and they are committed to delivering successful results to our clients. In many instances, members of these firms have participated in Holland & Knight's international lawyer trainee program, which has more than 600 alumni worldwide.

Members of our firm and several of our international practices have been selected for repeated inclusion in industry leading publications such as Chambers Global, Euromoney's Guide to the World's Best Lawyers, the International Who's Who of Business Lawyers and The Legal 500.
