In Carolyn's international corporate and commercial law practice, she
advises business entities that are involved in commercial activities with
another country. This may include importing and exporting, investing,
joint ventures, manufacture of a product, technology licensing, or other
commercial or financial arrangements. International law can be divided
in two main categories — public international law and private international law.
Public international law involves:
- Treaties between governments, including those governing trade and travel
- Decisions or regulations of the European Union
- Actions of international organizations such as the United Nations and World
- Decisions of international courts such as the International Court of Justice
- Other laws that are either created by more than one national government
or by an international organization or recognized international entities
that have impact beyond one nation
On the other hand,
private international law includes the national laws of a country that apply to anyone — resident
or not — who is operating there. These laws also apply to that country's
citizens and established companies as they partake in international activities.
Private international law includes rules for determining what law applies
when more than one country's law could apply, which is itself a field
of law called "conflict of laws." Typical examples of private
international law include laws controlling foreign investment in a country
or its trade laws.
Serving Clients in Private International Law Matters
Much of Ms. Hansen's work involves private international law —
that is, local law that controls how companies are set up, how contracts
are established, and how trade is regulated. Anyone in international business
may, however, also be affected by public international law, so it is important
for your counsel to be familiar with this area of law as well.
Utilizing extensive cross-cultural experience as an international lawyer
— as well as the experience gained from time spent living in Europe
and Asia — her representation is designed to help clients avoid
legal problems, accomplish objectives in the best way possible, and foster
long-term relationships with business colleagues in other cultures. She
travels to help resolve legal issues, whether that requires domestic travel
or international travel.
