McCarthy Tétrault launches International Trade and Investment Law Blog Terms of Trade

Toronto, September 12, 2018 – Our International Trade & Investment Law Group has launched its blog, Terms of Trade. From NAFTA renegotiations and trade wars with the US, to economic sanctions against Russia and Iran, Terms of Trade covers the latest developments in international trade and investment law and regulations.

Mitigating risks and identifying opportunities arising from significant uncertainty in the current international trade and investment environment has to be a priority for most companies. Whether you are an importer or exporter, a financial services provider, a natural resource company, or in the tech or software space, the rules impacting your cross-border activities are changing at a faster pace than ever before.

“It is essential, but not enough, for companies to stay on top of these developments,” said John Boscariol, Partner and head of the International Trade & Investment Law Group at McCarthy Tétrault. “They must also have a thorough understanding of how changes impact their supply chain from research and development all the way through to payments and post-sales support.”

Terms of Trade breaks down legal complexities across a range of areas, including:

  • Import/export obligations, customs, tariffs and border measures;
  • Export and technology transfer controls and economic sanctions;
  • Corruption and anti-bribery laws;
  • Investment treaties and trade agreements;
  • Trade remedies such as anti-dumping, countervail and safeguards;
  • Product regulation; and
  • Government procurement and contracting.
