International Capabilities

Through our operations in the United States, European Union and a network of strategic partners, TOG supports the most complex international engagements. In addition to our domestic and EU-based client work, our recent projects have taken us to Azerbaijan, Belgium, Bermuda, Canada, Egypt, France, Germany, Guernsey, Hungary, Japan, Jersey, Mexico, Russia, Saudi Arabia, Sweden, Switzerland, The Netherlands and United Arab Emirates.

Depending on the needs of the engagement, TOG is prepared to service and support client projects in nearly every major region of the world. We maintain quality and reliability on our projects because of long standing relationships, a proven project management methodology and continual communication with all stakeholders.

Data Privacy and Safe Harbor
On each international engagement, The Oliver Group reviews the Safe Harbor or data privacy requirements associated with the particular matter and integrates the appropriate strategy and action items into the overall project plan. The European Commission’s Directive on Data Protection went into effect in October of 1998, and prohibits the transfer of personal data to non-European Union nations that do not meet the European “adequacy” standard for privacy protection.

While the United States and the European Union share the goal of enhancing privacy protection for their citizens, the United States takes a different approach to privacy from that taken by the European Union. In order to bridge these different privacy approaches and provide a streamlined means for U.S. organizations to comply with the Directive, the U.S. Department of Commerce in consultation with the European Commission developed a “Safe Harbor” framework.

The Oliver Group is Safe Harbor certified by the U.S. Department of Commerce.
Diverse Client Experience
In 2008, The Oliver Group completed over 250 unique matters for a range of clients that included a mix of more than 80 law firms, major corporations, and a variety of channel partners. An AmLaw 10 law firm with over 700 lawyers was represented as well as a UK-based global financial services firm with more than 125,000 employees and 27 million customers. On many of these matters TOG was called upon to provide multiple services utilizing our global professional services reach and data centers in both the US and the UK.
True Global Reach
Many companies will suggest that they can handle global-scale projects, but TOG has real world experience and examples to prove it.
