WTO/CUSMA Treaty-based advice and disputes
Our lawyers assist companies and governments in interpreting, enforcing and defending international trade rules, including those established by the WTO agreements, regional free trade agreements (such as CUSMA, CPTPP, CETA and other bilateral and intergovernmental trade agreements), and investment treaties. We work closely with corporations and governments developing strategies for dispute settlement under these international agreements.
We advise clients seeking to leverage international trade agreement obligations to gain access to restricted markets or defend existing measures. We prepare submissions and appear on behalf of governments, corporations and industry associations before international dispute settlement panels.
