This month Nevada Lawyer brings you several articles from members of the bar who have practiced abroad. Additionally, this issue includes several articles about international law and practice. Together, these articles provide unique insight into the complications that can arise when practicing law in a foreign country or when representing foreign clients. First, Rew Goodenow brings us a summary of the legal issues relating to foreign trade treaties between individual U.S. states and foreign countries. Next, Brad Johnston provides a first-hand account of the complications that can arise when representing a foreign country in the U.S. Ryan Cobb then describes his experiences practicing law in Spain and offers valuable insight to lawyers dealing with foreign clients or lawyers. Captain Christopher Stein presents readers with a look at his role as a judge advocate with the U.S. Air Force in South Korea. Finally, don’t miss James Ebert’s interesting recounting of his life and experiences as a young attorney practicing law in Japan, in this month’s Back Story. Also in the November issue, in recognition of Veteran’s Day, we thank those Nevada attorneys who have served and who continue to serve our country through military service. You will find a list of names and some great photos on page 22. As this month’s issue editor, I hope you enjoy reading about our fellow Nevada lawyers and their experiences abroad. And to all of our veterans: Thank you!
JOHN R. ZIMMERMAN is a natural resources lawyer with Parsons Behle & Latimer where he practices primarily water and mining law.
