Description

As the benefits of free trade, economic integration, and investment liberalization are questioned, we assist companies in developing strategies to improve market access. Our team of trade experts understands the tariffs, quotas, investment restrictions and technical barriers that can disrupt the flow of trade. Knowing how to defend your interests and where to find growth and opportunity are essential for companies seeking new market access and supply chain opportunities. We have assisted clients with product-specific issues, including trade liberalization, intellectual property, regulatory and standard alignment and dispute settlement issues.
