Philip Haleen, an American attorney, is the senior Frankfurt-based partner of Faegre & Benson LLP, having established the office on April 1, 1991. Since moving to Germany in 1982, Philip's traditional corporate/international tax practice, with its emphasis on the planning and implementation of German business strategies, has increasingly become focused around the legal issues of consumer product and franchise companies, whose goods and services are protected by trademark.
His orientation to business issues, and appreciation of the need of businesses to achieve results within fixed time and cost parameters, is combined with German language fluency and a broad knowledge of German and American international business and tax law. His Top 10 list of Key Issues Facing U.S. Companies Doing Business in Germany has been a hit with both German and American professional audiences. Working within the cross-border, cross-cultural business setting, Philip seeks solutions that achieve his clients' objectives within the cultural and legal framework of the host country to the investment.
