Public International Law
Public international law governs the interaction between nations, as well as some aspects of the interaction between nations and private entities, non-governmental organizations (NGOs) and individuals.
Public international law may arise in a number of contexts, such as where human rights are involved, or where consular representations need to assert a sending government’s claims with regard to its nationals or interests in the United States.
It is important to note that due to local and foreign regulations, transactions involving foreign countries may require the retention of local counsel in the foreign State in question, or of specialized local counsel if particular issues are likely to arise. It may still be advisable to receive a prior assessment of the issues that may arise so that you may be better prepared as you allocate your resources.
