Trade Law 

Trade law is a complex, political and rapidly changing environment which, unless carefully managed, can pose significant challenges when doing business globally.

We work with our clients to navigate these risks and maximise the opportunities for cross-border trade.

Via our global network of trade law specialists we advise corporates and governments across the full spectrum of international trade matters, including: bilateral and multilateral trade agreements; trade remedies (anti-dumping, countervailing duties and safeguards); WTO policy and legislation; market access, subsidies, regulatory barriers, including standards and conformity assessment; negotiations and dispute settlement under trade agreements, and government procurement.

Through our multicultural and multilingual team, we are able to effectively engage with local trade officials to achieve the best commercial outcomes for our clients.

In the UK our growing team of trade law specialists includes Dr Lorand Bartels (Senior Counsel). Dr Bartels is a Reader in International Law at the University of Cambridge and has 20 years’ experience in the field as an academic and practitioner, having advised governments, international organisations and private clients on trade negotiations and WTO law.

Our practice is strengthened by alliances with top-tier law firms in South Africa (Webber Wentzel) and Australia (Allens), which provide our clients with access to a seamless service across the globe. Stephen Meltzer and Meluleki Nzimande, Partners, head up the Webber Wentzel trade law team, while Rachel Nicolson, Partner, leads the Allens trade law team.
