international trade 

 

Global markets bring both challenge and opportunity. Whether your organization is seeking to expand sales to new markets through organic growth, joint venture or acquisition, international business brings with it unfamiliar laws and regulations, treaties, customs, tariffs, language barriers and bureaucracy.

McMillan's International Trade Group understands that venturing beyond your home country's borders can involve additional expense and complications. We help you chart a smoother course by providing comprehensive and cost-effective legal advice that saves you time and money, while helping you achieve your business objectives.

The lawyers in our International Trade Group counsel companies ranging from multinationals to small and growing companies located in Canada and around the world. Our prime objective is to help them navigate trade and international business opportunities and overcome obstacles. Wherever our clients operate, our network of legal professionals is ready to provide the highest quality of service.

Governments also look to McMillan for assistance with complex legal issues that require an understanding of political sensitivities and the need for a combination of strategic thinking and tactical excellence. Whether revising laws for a country's entry into the World Trade Organization (WTO), advising on delicate negotiations affecting regulated or trade-protected sectors, or counseling government officials on trade rules applicable to major industrial projects, governments frequently put their trust in McMillan's lawyers.
