As the President of Globalaw Limited, a network of more than 100 law firms serving key market jurisdictions around the world, it is my distinct pleasure to welcome you to the Doing Business in Europe Guide written and produced by member firms representing global regions which serves as an immediate resource to provide valuable and critical information about legal requirements to operate in their respective countries.

Thus far, Globalaw has produced Doing Business Guides in Asia Pacific, Europe and Latin America. These Guides represent the individual and collaborative expertise of the law firms contributing to these publications, further demonstrating the regional strength of the attorneys who comprise the Globalaw network. In fact, the total population of the lawyers within Globalaw exceeds 4,500 practitioners who bring and offer a universe of practice areas to these key markets.

The Guides serve not only to demonstrate this expertise but also to provide an immediate roadmap to learn more about doing business fundamentals in a concise, informative and “desktop” format for your ready reference.

In addition to the contributing firms, I would also like to acknowledge the folks at MCI for their time and efforts to making this Guide a reality.
