Lawyers for foreign trade law

Our lawyers for foreign trade help trading companies, importers and exporters to ensure their business activities comply with the legal and regulatory requirements of international trade.

When companies trade in politically sensitive goods, for example, we ensure that they comply with all notification and approval obligations. The CMS lawyers specialising in foreign trade assist you by identifying goods that require import or export approval, and also cases where notification and documentation requirements apply. We provide the right wording for the relevant applications, take care of the required documentation and certificates of conformity, and support you in any foreign trade audit by the customs authorities.

Similarly, our experts in foreign trade law ensure that you comply with all the rules on capital and payment transactions with third countries. We can help you to obtain binding customs tariff information and advise on what to do if state-imposed barriers to trade apply to a country, such as anti-dumping and anti-subsidy agreements.
