Norris McLaughlin, P.A. Launches International Business Blog
Bridgewater, NJ (November 10, 2010) – U.S.-based law firm Norris McLaughlin, P.A. has launched Business Without Borders, an international business blog located at www.nmmlaw.com/category/bwob/. The blog keeps executives informed on the multifarious issues involved in successfully operating a business when expanding in to a new marketplace, namely the United States of America (U.S.).
“Upon entering a foreign jurisdiction, such as the U.S., foreign businesses are confronted with subtleties and complexities of state and federal law. Likewise, a U.S. firm looking to expand abroad faces dissimilarities and unknown nuances in other markets and legal systems. To prosper, businesses need the proper legal guidance from seasoned business attorneys that are knowledgeable in handling these matters, both inside and outside of the U.S.,” stated Robert C. Gabrielski, a Member of the firm and Chair of its International and Business Law Groups.
Norris McLaughlin, P.A. is a full service commercial and international legal practice with corporate, tax, intellectual property, immigration and litigation being significant components. Being properly informed on business, tax, employment, and environmental laws is especially pertinent to U.S.-bound businesses. Having knowledge and guidance up-front in those areas may not only reduce their legal risk in the U.S., but also increase the prospect of a profitable and successful business venture. The Norris McLaughlin, P.A.attorneys and invited experts that write for the blog provide clients with information that will be useful in taking advantage of the opportunities and laws in the U.S. and its 50 constituent states, as well as offering insight to those companies seeking to expand into non-U.S. markets.
