international trade regulation  


International trade is more complex than domestic sales of goods and services. Costs are higher, due to tariffs and border delays, as well as differences in culture and language. And it involves a variety of national, regional and international rules and regulations, addressing concerns ranging from fair competition to health, safety and environmental issues.

McMillan's International Trade Group helps clients navigate the maze of regulations that govern international business transactions. We assist companies to anticipate and address the impact of these regulatory regimes so that they can focus on serving customers, wherever in the world they may be. We advise companies on how they can profit in the global marketplace while complying with the applicable laws.
