Attorney Carl-Christian Thier published a continuing legal education course outlining current trends in international law. He focuses primarily on US-German, US-Austrian and US-Swiss legal issues. U.S. companies are often not aware of the legal landscape in Europe and law practices may be called on to give them guidance as they establish themselves abroad.
Attorney Thier discusses domestic and foreign litigation, international laws that should be considered in each situation. He also covers how U.S. judgements are handled internationally. Other important factors such as double taxation and treaties that impact legislature and taxation are included in the course.
If you have clients that are in need of guidance in any of these areas including:
- International Law
- International Estate Issues
- Foreign Judgements
- Double Taxation
This course may be suited to your practice. It does offer CLE credits and varies depending on the practice location. For instance for New York the course offers 1.5 for the category “professional practice.”
