International Law is a substantial part of Capital Law’s offering. Whether you need a non disclosure letter for your German subsidiary, purchase a property abroad, put in place a commercial contract with a US customer, enforce an injunction in Hong Kong, effect a cross border merger or carry out a global reorganisation, our team can help.

Some of our team are dual qualified, some have worked or studied abroad and some are multilingual. We understand difference in law, but also difference in business culture. Our international trade team works with UK companies which operate abroad, and global companies with a UK connection.

Through our association with Consulegis, the international network of lawyers, we offer a full commercial legal service in 45 jurisdictions. And, through our associated Scottish law firm, CCW LLP, we provide clients with access to expert Scots law advice as and when they need it.

“As an in-house counsel in a global company, Capital Law has been a valuable asset.  Their lawyers provide sound, prompt legal counsel in several of the areas prized by in-house lawyers when looking for trusted local counsel.  I’m glad they are on my team!”
