Global Trade & Commerce

Global view, local ability


While business practices differ from product to product or service to service, the life cycle of each contains the same fundamental elements. It starts with research and development, consulting services, procurement of raw materials or ingredients and actual manufacturing, then rolls over into transportation, moves into distribution, marketing and advertising in the destination market, and ends in the final sale to the customer or consumer.

Our Global Trade & Commerce Practice can help you enter new markets and confidently grow your business around the world.

We have extensive experience across all industries and service sectors, including food and consumables, cosmetics and pharmaceuticals, automotive and aviation, oil, gas and chemicals, fashion and luxury products, mining and drilling, DIY tools, toys, power generation, and others.

In March and May 2014, the Australian Government announced it would impose targeted financial sanctions and travel bans against particular individuals and entities in Russia and Ukraine. Australia's sanctions in relation to Ukraine have now commenced.
Japan is Australia's second largest trading partner. JAEPA has been described by the Australian Government as very positive news for Australian businesses. When JAEPA is fully implemented, more than 97 per cent of Australia's exports to Japan will receive preferential access or enter duty-free.
In Germany, in case of non-compliance with labeling or registration requirements possible authority action is neither the only nor the largest threat for a company placing products on the market. The sharp sword to protect against is rather injuctive relief sought by a competitor. 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.
