International Trade and Transport

Our GLS team has a wealth of experience across the full range of legal risk and regulatory issues faced by businesses in the global economy. With years of experience working for and with manufacturers and logistics providers, we recognise the need for savvy, but sound and practical legal advice relating to the purchase, sale, finance and transportation of goods across international borders.

Any given international trade transaction can be fraught with risk – whether it be in the physical realm of multimodal transport (by sea, land or air), or in relation to regulations, customs or finance. Our clients include manufacturers, both small and large, as well as multinational logistics providers, airlines, and local, regional and global shipping companies. Our experience also spans the range of legal needs faced by ‘spot’ traders, exporters/importers and international commodity houses.
