Neff Law Firm is particularly strong in international/cross-border transactions; perhaps 50% of the matters we handle have international aspects or involve international clients. Although a majority of our clients are based in California, including many in Silicon Valley, we have acted for clients based in Belarus, Belgium, Brazil, Canada, Chile, France, Germany, India, Japan, Malta, Mexico, Russia, Sweden, Switzerland and the United Kingdom. Certain major companies use us to handle issues that arise in Latin America because of our unique expertise there and language capabilities. We also have a trusted network of international lawyers with whom we work who can handle every matter that arises. We have helped many companies expand their operations and sales in overseas markets, and enhance their international profile.
