International Trade and Investment
Operating in today’s global marketplace means addressing a full range of international trade and investment matters. Navigating multilateral and regional trade agreements. Addressing export and import control restrictions. Litigating trade remedies cases. Managing customs and border security issues. And complying with anti-corruption laws.
Because the international legal landscape is so complex, organizations often confront a wide range of trade compliance and litigation issues across various jurisdictions.
That’s where we come in. With more than 45 offices across the United States, Europe, Latin America, Asia, Africa, and the Middle East, Hogan Lovells is one of the few firms that can handle large, varied, and complex trade matters in every major world market. Our global network of lawyers helps you understand the benefits and risks of prospective trade-related actions so you can make better decisions and capitalize on more opportunities. When disputes do arise, we partner with you to protect your interests and to achieve the best results.
What sets us apart is our combination of in-depth industry understanding, and our experience working with a wide range of government officials in the U.S., EU, and Asia.
We’ve been lauded by Chambers Global for our “comprehensive knowledge of the trade world and its latest developments” and by The Legal 500 for our ability to “craft analysis in a way that is useful in the real world.”
