North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA)

The NAFTA affects everyone doing business in Canada, the United States and/or Mexico, whether they be situated in those countries or in third countries.

We assist clients and represent their interests in the United States, Canada, Mexico and other parts of Latin America by providing insight into the manner in which changes in the North American trading environment will impact on business strategy and investments. We provide advice on the commercial, tariff and statutory benefits available in respect of particular projects and assistance in the negotiation and set up of direct investments, joint venture projects and subcontracting, agency and distribution contracts.

Specifically, these services relate to customs duty liability, duty relief mechanisms, business planning, special tariff rate quotas for clothing and textiles, emergency quotas or surcharges, anti-dumping and countervail trade actions, foreign investment, environmental standards, technical standards, certification, licensing and regulation of service industries, temporary entry of business visitors, government procurement and other aspects of the Agreement.
