Market access and national treatment

imageOur firm offers comprehensive legal services in the area of market access and national treatment under the World Trade Organization (WTO) framework and regional trade agrements. As part of our WTO and international trade law practice, we assist clients in navigating the complex rules and regulations surrounding market access and national treatment under the General Agreement on Tariffs and Trade (GATT), the General Agreement on Trade in Services (GATS), and the intricate web of regional trade agreements.

Market access refers to the ability of foreign companies to sell their goods and services in a particular market. National treatment refers to the principle that foreign companies should be treated no less favorably than domestic companies in the same market. Both of these principles play a critical role in ensuring fair competition and promoting trade between countries. Our team has extensive experience in advising clients on market access and national treatment issues related to tariff and non-tariff barriers, taxes, regulatory issues, and investment requirements. 

Our attorneys have extensive experience advising clients on a wide range of market access and national treatment issues. We have a proven track record of successfully advising clients in market access and national treatment matters arising under WTO law and the law of regional trade agreements. We also provide counsel to clients on how to comply with market access and national treatment obligations in order to avoid disputes, as well as on how to unlock export markets which are illegally protected by trading partners.

Whether you are a domestic industry looking to protect your market from foreign competition, or an exporter seeking to expand your market access, our team has the expertise and experience to help you achieve your goals. We are dedicated to providing our clients with the highest level of service and achieving the best possible outcome for their business.
