International Commercial & Trade

The Commercial & Trade practice focuses on the international sourcing, manufacturing, distributing and selling of products and services, in particular via agency and brokerage models, or by way of distributors, such as authorized dealers or franchise systems. In practice, a crucial aspect are post-termination claims such as indemnities and investment compensations that may have overriding mandatory effect.

Correspondingly, the practice advises on trade compliance related issues such as anti-bribery and corruption, trade sanctions and export and import controls, as well as product labelling, product liability and safety (recalls and preventive measure), and sales promotion and marketing rules across multiple countries.

Another crucial regulatory aspect for engaging in commercial activities are business licenses and permits, such as obtaining the applicable trade licenses and facility permits, and appointing the required regulatory personnel.

In addition, the review and drafting of consumer contracts as well as advising in the course of class actions lodged by consumer associations (e.g., VKI) play an important role.
