  • When our client, BTS, an international management consulting and business training firm based in Stockholm, acquired Wizerize, a leading technology and consulting company based in Copenhagen, BTS turned to the Pierce Atwood immigration team for assistance with the design and implementation of cost-effective immigration strategies that would allow key Wizerize talent from Copenhagen to work collaboratively in the United States with the BTS Digital Services Division on the business integration of the Web 2.0 technology platform – Wizer® – developed and built by Wizerize.
  • We are defending Rolling Optics AB, an innovative Swedish start-up, in patent litigation filed by a U.S. company that is threatened by our client’s advanced technology.

  • When a Pierce Atwood client became concerned about collecting payment for fuel delivered to a troubled cruise ship/ferry owner trading between Maine and Nova Scotia, Pierce Atwood came up with a strategy for intervening in the case to assert a maritime lien based on a newly developed line of maritime case law – and within a week, the vessel owner settled the claim for nearly the full amount due.
  • We represent a U.S. fishing company in the acquisition of a fishing vessel seized under a Mareva Injunction in Nova Scotia. Our work includes advising and assisting the company with deletion of the vessel from the Canadian flag, the propriety of subsequent structural revisions to the vessel, registration of the vessel in a U.S. state, and preservation of the vessel’s legal ability to engage in the fisheries of the United States.
