Companies engaged in international trade are increasingly impacted by governmental actions, which creates a challenging business environment for all players. The involvement by governments, whether negotiating new trade agreements or modifying existing international trade laws and regulations, regularly alters the legal landscape. Regardless of the ultimate goal, whether to relax or tighten trade laws, the immediate impact on our clients is often a tangle of new rules, procedures and exceptions, which must be followed to the letter.
