Good comment...

I wanted to post a very informative comment from a couple days back regarding international expansion for solos/small firms:

You most certainly should be thinking international. My firm has seven lawyers and about 95% of our practice is international. We have an office in Shanghai and are looking to open one in another country. There is a huge need out there for lawyers to handle the day to day international work that is always coming up and that work most certainly involves family law. We have worked with family lawyers on a number of international divorces, including one that we got thrown out of the US into Poland, where the laws would be much more favorable for our client. We oftentimes help US divorce lawyers here secure documentation from overseas that they need for the courts here. We often get international estate planning calls and we have no expertise in that area and almost nobody does. It goes on and on. Check out our website here: http://www.harrismoure.com/_eng/about.html and our blog here: http://www.chinalawblog.com/ and you will see what I mean. The possibilities for small and solos are just huge.

That's some pretty interesting stuff...interesting use of foreign attorneys and 'Of Counsels.' Also, note that when you go to their front Website, there are five language choices...is there another language that your site should be viewable in?
