Global Practice

At GVA, we believe that advancement and globalization of IT technology have opened up opportunities to expand business across national borders on the global stage. However, there are barriers to cross-border service deployment, such as the laws and regulations of each country and entry restrictions. In order to solve international legal issues, legal opinions and research by local legal professionals are indispensable. However, not all local legal professionals are able to provide such legal support. We are GVA, have the confident and capability to provide reasonable and affordable global legal support to our clients.

At GVA, our global practices involve by assigning our foreign members within GVA to work together with our local attorneys to conduct face to face meeting with our clients in their preferred language. Our legal professionals will gather detailed information from our client in order to provide optimal legal services. The Global Team will formulate and proposed a strategy for solutions that meet the needs of the clients.
