Internationalizing Legal Services

Supporting the needs of your international clients

International legal practice requires more than simply referring clients to lawyers in other countries to assist them. We have personally and successfully worked with professionals around the world and have continued to monitor the quality and cost effectiveness of these foreign firms. In this way, we can add real value to your clients.

Law firms and in-house legal departments must broaden their international capabilities. In an effort to meet this growing need, Nahmias + Partners offers tailor-made collaborations with local firms and legal departments.

Internationalizing business

Your international business lawyers

We are aware that as local businesses seek to expand beyond national borders, they require ever more sophisticated legal services. It is not enough to make translations or assume that a legal solution that works in one jurisdiction, will work in another.

This is why our law firm offers many of the highly specialized services provided by large international Law firms, but with a greater level of experienced attorney access and attention.

We focus our attention on the international legal risks so you can focus on the success of your business.

Peter Nahmias

Born in Trenton, New Jersey, Peter Nahmias is an American attorney-at-law, admitted to the New York and New Jersey Bars, as well as a Spanish abogado, admitted to the Madrid Bar (Ilustre Colegio de Abogados de Madrid). He holds a Juris Doctor degree from Fordham University School of Law, New York, and an LLM (Master de Asesoria Juridica de Empresa) from the Instituto de Empresa, Madrid.

He has published extensively, participated in numerous seminars regarding international commercial and investment law and is an adjunct professor at the EAE Business School (“Escuela de Administracion de Empresas”) where he teaches International Economics Law.

He is fluent in English and Spanish and is versed in both civil and common law. He has over 25 years’ experience counselling over a broad range of international legal matters.

His professional trajectory includes employment in major law firms in the US (Thiefry et Associes from 1989 to 1991 and Lowenstein Sandler from 1991 to 1996). In 1997, after completing his LLM at the Instituto de Empresa, Madrid, he embarked on an in-house career, first with Decathlon España (1998-2000) Pernod Ricard España (2000- 2004) and then British American Tobacco (2004- 2014) where he worked in Madrid, London and Dubai occupying positions of Legal Director Iberia, Global Regulatory Counsel, Legal Director Middle East and finally Head of Global Regulatory Counseling.

Having worked in large law firms and multinational corporations in the US, Europe and the Middle East, as part of business leadership teams at all organizational levels, he matches strong legal professional skills with a business focused, creative and solution-orientated approach. Not settling with simply addressing legal issues, his bias has always been towards working proactively to drive innovation and improved business performance.
