Although the global market has become increasingly open to trade, disparate local laws and varied business and cultural practices can make creating, distributing and selling goods and services in certain markets a major challenge. International trade sanctions limit how companies can do business, as well as customs laws, exchange controls and foreign investment requirements.
Our International Trade and Commercial lawyers help clients overcome these challenges and successfully compete in the world's developed and emerging markets. We advise major industrial, financial services, technology, consumer products, pharmaceutical and energy companies on sourcing, manufacturing, distributing and selling their products and services around the world. We also help clients select, monitor and manage their relationships with the third-party suppliers, manufacturers, distributors and sales agents in their supply chains.
Well-versed in WTO, regulatory and commercial law, we advise companies on compliance issues such as anti-corruption, anti-bribery, trade sanctions and export and import controls, as well as commercial contracts, product labelling requirements, product liability and recalls, and sales promotion and marketing rules across multiple countries. No matter the issue, we focus on simplifying complex trade requirements so our clients can focus on growing their businesses.
