International Trade

The Middle East remains an important center for the international trade of goods and services. Many businesses act as brokers, agents or distributors of goods and services for foreign companies throughout the region. Goods and services are crossing the border at unprecedented rates, regulated by bilateral or international conventions. Corporations are outsourcing the manufacturing of their products. Major foreign companies are marketing their trademark names through franchises. We have been actively involved in the drafting of bilateral and multilateral trade agreements that are at the very heart of this international trade.

With its local strength combined with an understanding of foreign business practices and foreign laws and regulations, ElKhoury Law Firm has the necessary skills and experience to represent both foreign and domestic firms in cross border transactions. The variety of languages spoken in our office, the education of our attorneys at foreign institutions, and our history of representing foreign firms means that we have the familiarity with foreign cultures and legal systems to coordinate such international transactions. We have represented clients in confronting local customs and tariffs and in structuring their transactions so as to minimize the obstruction of both.

International trade law involves the application of a combination of international treaties and regulations, an understanding of the industry customs, and an understanding of the compatibility of the different domestic laws of the parties involved.
