About the Book

Global trade has skyrocketed, and with it the need for transnational legal counseling (and litigation help). The pace of change in law firm organization and structure, particularly among law firms that offer their services across national borders, has accelerated in the past few years.

This new and updated reference, the ABA Guide to Foreign Law Firms, Fifth Edition, is designed to help both U.S. and non U.S. lawyers in identifying qualified legal counsel in the many foreign jurisdictions with which such lawyers are likely to come into contact, particularly those in countries emerging as significant factors in international commercial transactions.

The complexity and diversity of legal problems today frequently brings American lawyers and their clients into contact with the laws of foreign jurisdictions. In addition to American clients wanting to purchase from, invest in, or export to, other countries, there are numerous occasions during counseling and/or litigation when questions of foreign law arise. As a practical and valuable reference tool, the Guide lists the foreign law firms most likely to be used or considered by leading practitioners when foreign law issues arise. The authors of the guide are both partners in prominent international law firms and are both former Chairs of the ABA's Section of International Law.

Here's what others are saying about this practical guide

"This new Fifth Edition of the ABA Guide to Foreign Law Firms is an important resource and must-have for any corporate counsel or law firm partner who handles cross-border transactions or cases. My good friend Bill Hannay and his colleague Jim Silkenat have continued and expanded their impeccable coverage of the right firms to use in more than 100 foreign jurisdictions".

-- Hugo Chaviano, Secretary General, Inter - American Bar Association, Federación Interamericana de Abogados

Silkenat and Hannay have continued and expanded their impeccable coverage of the right firms to use in more than 100 foreign jurisdictions."

-- Stephen N. Zack, President, American Bar Association, Partner, Boies, Schiller & Flexner, Miami, Florida


"This book is a marvelous resource for those of us engaged in international practice: a highly practical compendium of able counsel in countries around the world, the countries where U.S. (and many foreign) lawyers are most likely to have a need for a skilled local lawyer. The ever more complex cross-border transactions and problems that our clients bring to us with increasing frequency require quick and confident referrals or inquiries to foreign counsel, and this book is an extraordinarily credible starting point for finding the best lawyers. Granted, there are many fine lawyers and law firms who are not listed here, and I find myself wishing I could see their names here, too. But their absence, as the editors point out, says nothing negative about their ability, and to find here in one place the essential contact details for excellent lawyers in a breathtakingly extensive array of countries, already vetted by experienced international practitioners, is to find a treasure indeed. I predict that this expanded new edition will be even more popular than previous additions and will prove to be one of the most-thumbed books on the international practitioner's shelf. Kudos to my colleagues in international practice, Jim Silkenat and Bill Hannay, for continuing a great tradition with this new edition."

-- Delos N. Lutton, President of Honor (Past President, 2005-2006), Union Internationale des Avocats UIA International Association of Lawyers
