International Practice

Customs/Rules of Origin, Trade Barriers/Controls

Customs and rules of origin are technical challenges that corporations expanding globally face in connection with international trade. The frameworks and treaties of the WTO, TPP, EPA, FTA and other organizations represent an ongoing effort to eliminate imbalances on an international scale, but local variations remain a deep-rooted legal challenge that both impacts day-to-day business and frequently gives rise to many complex issues.

Our firm is home to attorneys capable of handling legal matters in English, French and Chinese. We give our full support so that clients can focus on their core business without being unnecessarily burdened by linguistic or cultural differences related to legal issues.
