SKT’s global trade compliance team provides international companies an edge with lowering commercial restrictions and meeting market demands. Positioned in some of the world’s most thriving commercial environments, our attorneys provide guidance to merchants that look for competitive edge.
The biggest difference between global companies and those who struggle to expand their marketplace falls squarely on barriers of entry. Countless businesses fight to make a difference in their immediate market while others thrive on an international level. The greatest hurdle, therefore, is in finding a way to see through the confusing regulatory hurdles that exist at almost every stage of the supply chain while minimizing cost.
SKT brings together several multi-disciplinary markets to better serve clients to help them grow. Nuanced issues such as quotas, export controls, intellectual property restrictions, tariffs, agency license requirements, and port of entry investigations all conjoin into very intimidating hurdles for most SME’s. Our team understands these challenges and guides our clients into their next growth cycle.
Our team of experienced attorneys are well suited to provide clear and effective legal solutions to any business-related issues you or your company will encounter.
