Sanctions, International Trade and Investment Compliance
Physical and financial trading in goods and commodities influences the global economy. Nevertheless, the intricacy of the contractual, regulatory and financial landscape can create pitfalls for the unwary.
Whether governments are negotiating multilateral, regional or bilateral trade agreements, or revising national laws and regulations, the involvement of governments has a direct impact on the rules governing international trade. Therefore, companies engaging in international trade must negotiate their way through local laws, international treaties and the rules of common trade practices. Legal counsel must be versed in all three.
We are able to proffer a global perspective when dealing with the diverse contractual, regulatory and financial issues that affect the sector. We provide guidance to our clients in navigating complicated trade regulatory processes and are competent in creating and executing solutions that allow them to operate their businesses in accordance with actively changing and on some occasions, conflicting trade laws and regulations.
As the expansion of global markets and value chains continues to make the world a smaller place, we promise to keep you informed about the rules and practices governing your international business, as well as the tools that are available to them.
