Office Description:

Summary: Russin & Vecchi in Washington, D.C. provides international and domestic commercial and corporate legal services.

The Washington office is part of the firm's Russian Practice Group, and also supports our offices in Latin America and Asia. We work with our overseas offices where clients of those offices need advice on U.S. law, or guidance with issues involving the U.S. Government, or have projects or activities that can be supported by one of the international financing agencies located in Washington, D.C. International Legal and Business Services: Much of our work in Washington is for U.S. companies as they begin or expand their foreign operations, or make foreign direct investments. We also provide services in the U.S. and abroad for foreign clients. Our work extends to issues common to many of these international matters. These include minimizing U.S. and foreign taxes; ensuring compliance with the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act while maximizing competitive advantages; avoiding violations of Commerce Department antiboycott regulations; and analyzing the extraterritorial effect of U.S. antitrust laws.

Governments have played a minimal role in regulating e-commerce because of the speed of its expansion and because of the basic character of cyberspace. No area is growing more rapidly than the law of cyberspace and e-business. R&V keeps abreast of developments on a daily basis.

For over thirty years we have worked in developing countries where it was necessary to navigate through undeveloped legal systems. This is the legal environment in which e-commerce is now becoming a global force, and the firm has been able to use its creative skills to anticipate and solve problems. Lawyers in the firm have assisted clients with problems in many emerging e-commerce and cyberlaw areas.
