President Trump’s rhetoric, as well as some of his actions, on international trade and foreign investment issues has called into question the legal framework on which businesses and investors have relied in developing their global supply chains.
Predicting what this US administration will attempt to do on the trade and foreign investment fronts, let alone what it will be able to do given international and domestic political constraints, is complicated at the very least. Nevertheless, companies with international supply chains should be working to identify potential risks - and opportunities - presented by the administration's international trade and foreign investment agenda.
We have a dedicated team of international trade, foreign investment and commercial experts who are able to help companies navigate unstable environments.
