Although the global market has become increasingly open to trade, disparate local laws and varied business and cultural practices can limit how companies can do business in Ontario.
Our considerable expertise in Canadian federal laws and foreign relations, helps us offer comprehensive services in connection with international trade such as customs, trade remedies, exchange controls and various regulations and policies effecting your trade.
With expertise and in-depth knowledge of the regulatory and commercial law, we advise companies on compliance issues such as anti-dumping, tariff classification, trade sanctions, as well as commercial contracts, product labelling requirements, product recalls, sales promotion and marketing rules.
Where necessary, we also represent clients before the Canada Border Services Agency and the Canadian International Trade Tribunal, arbitration panels, as well as challenges to the Federal Court of Canada, and other international fair trade bodies.
