Global Expansion

What considerations do companies need to be mindful of when expanding beyond headquarters, internationally?  For foreign companies coming to the United States, when does it make sense to set up a subsidiary or perform a DE flip?  For American companies expanding their workforce abroad, what kind of employment, immigration, and intellectual property concerns apply?  When does setting up an entity such as a subsidiary abroad make sense, versus using a PEO?


  • Why some foreign companies may set up subsidiaries versus flip when coming to the United States
  • What American companies need to know when expanding or hiring abroad in Europe and Asia in terms of employment, immigration, and intellectual property protection
  • Tax ramifications of cross-border operations
  • When setting up a PEO is advisable or not
