Outbound International Business

A growing number of U.S. businesses are seeking to expand their sales, and discover and enter new markets.  As U.S. goods and services enjoy an extremely favorable image in the foreign marketplace, there exists today - and for the foreseeable future - high market demand for innovative and competitively-priced U.S. goods and services.  RKF attorneys help many U.S. companies find foreign markets ready, willing and able to accept their products and services, through the export of goods and/or services, joint venture and partnership opportunities and investments. 

Outbound export of goods and components often entails establishing foreign sales and marketing, financing transactions, and foreign-based assembly or further manufacturing of the exported goods.   The outbound export of services entails U.S. companies assisting foreign companies, governments and/or individuals with the provision of technical or business advice and consulting or the use of intellectual property, generating consulting and/or licensing revenues in exchange for those services.
