International Trade & Customs

Understanding the fact that globalization has fuelled a rapid increase in cross-border trade and investment, we are here to assist companies to develop and execute strategies to improve market access and minimize risk arising from international trade developments. 

Our ability to design strategies to solve trade problems is reflected in the broad range of trade policy matters we have handled: antidumping and subsidies rules and regulations, tariff and non-tariff barriers and trade with non-market economies. We are well versed in dealing with the regulatory agencies that oversee international trade matters and regularly present before these agencies. We can help you to identify, understand and even dissolve the risks your business may face, including risks you may not even have thought of. There is an old adage, “Risk comes from not knowing what you're doing. 

Our areas of work include but not limited to the following:

•    Import/Export Controls and Sanctions
•    Customs Compliance and Enforcement
•    Drafting International Trade Agreements
•    Drafting of Letters of Credit and Dispute Resolution
•    Ship Leasing, Bills of Lading, Marine Fraud, Ship detention, Shipment and Loading, Warehousing and Detention of Goods
•    Commodity Inspection, Foreign Exchange and Customs-related Matters
