Praxis has developed a broad array of services and tools to support the pursuit of global business interests. Through the years our experts have assisted numerous U.S. companies in their efforts to expand their businesses abroad, this has included advising on strategic investments and acquisitions as well as the more mundane but highly critical nature of local market conditions (regulations, politics, standards, customs et al). Many of our principals have a background in international political economy. Praxis' entire suite of business development and competitive analysis approaches and tools have been adapted to the international context and variables and are regularly brought to bear to create new or defend existing sources of global competitive advantage. Our experience with the politics of economics (domestic and international) provides unique insight into extra-economic aspects of competition and comparative advantage.
