Governments turn to McMillan for assistance with complex legal issues that require an understanding of political sensitivities, 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 counselling government officials on trade rules applicable to major industrial projects, governments frequently put their trust in McMillan’s lawyers to succeed.

INTERNATIONAL TRADE REGULATIONS

International sales are more complex than domestic sale of goods and services. Costs are higher, due to tariffs and border delays, as well as differences in culture and language. Companies wanting to sell their products across borders must navigate national, regional and international trade regulations that address everything from fair competition to health, safety and environmental issues.

McMillan’s international trade lawyers help corporate clients navigate the maze of trade regulations that govern international business transactions. McMillan is known to help corporate clients lead on a global scale by advising on international trade policy and compliance matters; providing representation in anti-dumping, anti-subsidy and safeguard proceedings; negotiating with Canadian and international governmental bodies; litigating disputes before the courts and international arbitration tribunals; representing them in dispute settlement proceedings under the North American Free Trade Agreement and other international and regional trade treaties; and assisting them as they develop and implement internal compliance programs and conduct internal investigations.
