The International Practice is a substantial and rapidly expanding part of King & Spalding's overall practice. Our International Practice Group integrates an understanding of foreign politics and cultures with sophisticated legal skills. Combined with the group's strong grasp of relevant technologies and industry practices and its significant experience worldwide, these skills ensure that King & Spalding is able to complete projects successfully and resolve disputes in both established and emerging markets.
Because much of the International Practice Group's work crosses national borders, our lawyers are seasoned international travelers with a truly global perspective. Wherever they travel, the group's lawyers utilize the latest technology to keep them fully connected with the firm's integrated databases.
In addition to the technological challenges of an international practice, the group is intimately aware of the cultural complexities of structuring and operating foreign investments and the risks associated with international business. King & Spalding lawyers not only speak other languages, they are "culturally fluent." Our lawyers' language capabilities include Arabic, French, German, Hindi, Italian, Japanese, Korean, Mandarin Chinese, Portuguese, Punjabi, Russian, Sindhi, Spanish and Taiwanese. Many of our lawyers have lived in the foreign countries where we now represent clients.
