International Trade

Our international trade practice provides strategic and legal advice to companies and investment funds operating or investing across borders. The firm's team is experienced in the proper handling of international corporate transactions, market access and overcoming trade barriers, supply chain strategies, double taxation treaties, and free trade agreements, with emphasis on the United States and Canada, as well as the European Union, particularly German-speaking countries (i.e. Germany, Austria and Switzerland).

Based on our knowledge of dynamic regulations, we advise our clients in all customs related activities, and process their approval as Authorized Economic Operators (AEO), which entitles them to tax benefits and other relevant advantages, such as enabling companies to undertake proceedings as exporters and importers with the National Tax and Customs Office (DIAN: Dirección de Impuestos y Aduanas Nacionales) and reduce applicable guarantees and collaterals, among other benefits. The practice is also competent in leveraging the potential of free trade zone regimes, aiming to obtain the customs, tax, and foreign trade benefits under this scheme.

In terms of legal counsel on foreign trade, we provide guidance on the accurate tariff classification of goods and the appropriate usage of rules of origin. In case of trade litigation or administrative investigations, we represent our clients throughout these processes with the aim of minimizing legal and other contingencies, and safeguarding their operations.
