International Trade

International trade takes businesses into foreign waters. Far beyond the usual legal protection, they need a legal partner who has navigated these waters before.

The International Trade Group at Cassels Brock has argued clients’ cases before international tribunals, represented clients at all levels of Canadian courts and tribunals, and has advised federal and provincial governments on the effects of international trade policies.

Our clients include Canadian companies, foreign companies, government departments and agencies, state-controlled corporations, international governmental and non-governmental organizations.

We provide a range of legal services related to the movement of goods, services, capital and intellectual property across international borders.
