International Trade and Regulatory Compliance
Sills Egsgard LLP offers a unique package of skills and experience to assist businesses engaged in domestic and international trade. We deliver focussed and cost-effective advice to both Canadian and non-Canadian firms to assist them in meeting the evolving regulatory compliance requirements that now feature prominently in international business transactions.
Our private sector expertise enables us to provide the advice that you need in the areas of Canadian customs law, import and export controls, trade sanctions, foreign anti-bribery issues, trade remedies including anti-dumping, countervailing duty and safeguards investigations and government procurement.
We also have considerable practical experience in advising clients on protection of foreign investments through foreign trade and investment agreements, including bilateral and multilateral investment protection treaties.
Our civil litigation capabilities complement our trade expertise and can help to enforce your rights in any disputes that may arise.
Private businesses can also benefit from our wide-ranging knowledge of the World Trade Organization agreements and their concrete application in domestic law. Similarly, our knowledge of the rights and obligations resulting from the more than 200 preferential trading agreements now in force between various countries around the world can be of great value to your company in assessing foreign market access potential for your products and services. Our team of lawyers and consultants is following closely the UK’s withdrawal from the European Union and the very real implications that this will have for exports and imports of goods and services to and from the UK.
We can also offer trade and economic law advice to governments grappling with the problem of developing trade and economic regulatory regimes that promote economic growth and development.
Our lawyers and consultants cumulatively have decades of experience in international trade and investment matters.
We look forward to being of service.
