We leverage our diversity to provide excellent advice and forceful representation in a broad range of business sectors and practice areas.
The diversity of our attorneys, paraprofessionals and staff reflects both the firm's domestic commitments and its international capabilities.
The securities, commodities, and other investments industry has been strongly affected by the financial crisis and recession that began in December 2007. Growth will be driven by increasing levels of investment in securities and commodities in the global marketplace, as well as the growing need for investment advice. However, projected growth rates are expected to be more moderate than in the past due to the domestic and European financial crisis.
Another factor contributing to projected growth is the globalization of securities and commodities markets—the extension of traditional exchange and trading boundaries into new markets in foreign countries. Recent developments, from the rapid growth of Asian economies to the merger of the New York Stock Exchange and Euronext, will continue to make Americans more eager to invest abroad and, at the same time, encourage investors in other nations to purchase U.S. securities. ALG has experience in these markets. Let us help you grow.
