As well as dealing with UK legal issues we can call on our membership of Interlaw to get access to lawyers worldwide to help you deal with any foreign legal questions.  We have recently worked with lawyers in the Channel Islands, various Caribbean jurisdictions, Singapore and Canada on marine financings, for example.
