International trade

We help clients get the best out of cross border trade opportunities - whether by effectively navigating the international trade law framework, expanding into new markets or influencing key trade policy.

We work as part of an international team to offer advice and practical solutions to companies, governments and trade associations on cross-border business, legal and policy mattersWe take a cross - disciplinary approach in advising our clients on all issues connected with market access and trade.   Where an overseas organisation is looking to establish a presence in the UK or gain access to the UK market, we can advise on corporate structures, regulatory barriers and risk, business immigration and investment.   As the UK leaves the EU we are able to assist clients globally in preparing for Brexit, including advising on supply chain risk, regulatory divergence and trade policy advocacy to maximise commercial opportunities.
