Most countries impose legal control on the export of goods from their jurisdictions while international trade agreements often include additional import, export and trade regulations that companies must comply with. Failing to observe export control laws and international sanctions can have severe consequences for companies including loss of export privileges, reputational damage, criminal and civil fines, and even imprisonment.

Our International Commercial & Trade lawyers help clients keep up with rapidly changing, often conflicting import, export and trade regulations that impact cross-border trade transactions and activities. Our areas of expertise include export controls, export clearance provisions, anti-boycott controls, outbound trade compliance, VAT/indirect taxes, product safety, strategic sourcing, supply chain security and trade remedies.
