Global Trade & Commerce

 

Global view, local ability


Even in an increasingly open global market, disparate local laws, varied business and cultural practices can pose challenges to trade. Changing market conditions and legislative priorities affect customs laws, exchange controls and foreign investment requirements. Unforeseen risks across borders can trigger liabilities and costs that outweigh investment returns.

At Baker & McKenzie, we bring deep local knowledge and vast cross-border capabilities to bear on helping you successfully compete in the world's established and emerging markets. Versed in WTO, regulatory and commercial issues, our 450 Trade & Commerce lawyers collaborate closely to help you design and implement sound international strategies that are built on global best practices and authentic local insight.

We have seen in recent practice that companies increasingly use this possibility to try to stop their competitors from selling products on the German market.
