International Law

Geoffrey M. Goodale, Chair


The International Practice Section continues to serve the needs of Virginia lawyers by encountering matters that are international in nature or which have transnational implications, and their clients require proactive expertise to meet the dramatic opportunities and challenges of this dynamic and complex business and regulatory environment.

The International Practice Section currently has 443 members.  The annual budget for the past fiscal year was $3,040.00 and has a remaining balance of $1,771.50.

The Board met quarterly throughout the year.  In April and May 2020, the section co-sponsored a non-CLE entitled “Buyer and Seller Beware – New Regulations Expand the Scope and Powers of CFIUS”.  

The International Practice Section Board held a virtual Annual Meeting since the VSB Annual Meeting was cancelled due to the COVID19 pandemic.

The leadership of the International Practice Section for the upcoming year is Geoffrey M. Goodale, Chair; Melissa Gorsline, Vice Chair; Megan G. Barnhill, Secretary; and Bradley Haneberg, Treasurer.
