The global economy has moved cross-border legal issues to the forefront of business strategy. One way or another, all businesses feel the effects:
- transnational giants know the cost of compliance abroad;
- emerging transnational companies face the constant risk of noncompliance;
- domestic companies are losing out on opportunities abroad.
To remain competitive, companies must use a global strategy to maximize profits, using cross-border employment, foreign consumer markets, and foreign tax advantages.
I give businesses immediate access to cross-border strategy. I help clients of all sizes formulate, refine, and implement global strategies for the global stage. I constructively advise in-house managers, while assertively managing outside counsel in jurisdictions abroad.
With rapid results, businesses get the knowledge and resources they need to compete on the global stage.

As a lawyer who has practiced international law with Europe for over 30 years I have been very impressed with the answers of Mr. Heine. Although relatively new to Avvo, his answers are clear, analytic and customized to the needs of Avvo askers. These are exactly the qualities that every client would be looking for in hiring an attorney.
