Expansion into the UK and Europe – despite the inevitable and unknown consequences due to Brexit – remains an attractive business strategy for U.S. companies, investors and financial institutions. Mature economies, business environments that are compatible with those in the U.S. and last but not least, stable legal systems, make Europe an appealing destination for companies wanting to expand. The same is true in the opposite direction, as European companies increasingly turn westwards and are looking for opportunities in the U.S., especially here in New England.
Transatlantic cooperation can take place in a variety of forms, including as joint ventures, strategic alliances, private equity and venture capital investments, organic growth, and M&A activities. Which is the best strategy to choose for a business, and what are the key issues, latest legal, political and economic developments to take into consideration when planning to expand into Europe?
Discussing the these topics and answering your questions is an international panel of professionals with decades of experience in guiding and counseling businesses in their expansion plans:
