Customs, sanctions and export control

Customs, sanctions and export control

Ever-changing regulations, global trade conflicts, increasing globalisation: companies operating in different countries face many challenges. Challenges for which you want to find a solution in time, so you are not faced with unpleasant surprises. Our lawyers operate at the interface of tax and customs law and are happy to help you on your way. By ensuring clear agreements and, in the event of a dispute, providing a solution.

Your challenges

When you trade internationally to and from the EU, you are subject to a wide range of international laws and regulations. A few of the issues you may face:

  • How to continue to comply with the continuously changing international laws and regulations
  • How to get your products imported and exported to and from the EU
  • How to prepare the import or export of products according to international export control and sanctions legislation
  • How to put a new product on the market in accordance with local regulations
  • What to do in the event of an (unjustified) customs claim and how to object

Whatever situation your company finds itself in, you want to know what your rights and obligations are. Also across national borders. For example, if the transport fails at customs, you receive a customs claim or a conflict arises with your international partner(s). You can often resolve and even prevent a dispute, large or small, with the right advice.

    Customs, sanctions and export control team

    Lawyers who think both from a business perspective and from the law book. That’s our trademark. Not simply listing the rules, but applying the law in the context of your company, so we can prevent and solve (international) legal issues together.

    Our approach is multidisciplinary: the team is tailored to your issue. Even when this requires specific knowledge of, for example, insurance or commercial law, or if you could use extra international support. Legal issues in customs, international trade and regulations have common ground with trade, industry and logistics, corporate law and sometimes also with employment law and property law and environmental law.That is the advantage of a full-service firm: we are as small as possible and as large as necessary.
