International trade is facing new challenges such as globalisation, protectionism, new technologies and fundamental changes in business models and supply chains. We help our clients navigate the increasingly complex, interconnected regulatory framework, bringing legal certainty and streamlining their transactions.

Our proximity to European institutions through our Brussels office, our multidisciplinary teams, expert knowledge of the corresponding procedures, authorities and courts, and unrivalled legal sector expertise put us in a unique position to provide services of the highest standard in relation to the following issues, among others:

  • Trade-defence measures in the EU: anti-dumping and anti-subsidy duties and safeguard measures.
  • Customs law: customs value, origin and tariff classification; customs procedures; disputes and litigation before national and European authorities.
  • Sanctions and export and investment controls.
  • Smuggling and internal investigations: potential smuggling offences and financial-crime proceedings.
  • Regulatory and product safety: highly regulated products; administrative and judicial proceedings as well as procedures before self-regulatory bodies.
  • International sales: negotiating and drafting sales, insurance and goods-transport contracts; advising on Incoterms; assisting clients with disputes, judicial and arbitration proceedings.
