Around the World

Posted on June 9, 2013

While visiting the DLA Piper offices in Hong Kong’s Landmark Center to meet with potential IPO sponsors for one of a client’s portfolio companies, I realized that I’ll have circumnavigated the globe on this one business trip.  How is that?  Well, later in the month I’ll attend my firm’s global partners meeting in Barcelona.  To get there I’ll travel from Beijing to Spain on a flight that will take me across Asia and Russia into Europe.  Afterwards, I’ll stop in Abu Dhabi for additional investor meetings before heading back to the US.

I suppose this is in part the reason for this blog – sharing a global perspective on international transactions and business and financial issues.  Occasionally intermixed will be perspectives developed from many years teaching law school and working with government entities in many places.
