The global market has become increasingly open, but local laws and business and cultural practices mean it can be a challenge to create, distribute and sell goods and services in some markets. A shift towards increasingly complex consumer protection laws is affecting B2C and B2B businesses.

With commercial experience across multiple markets, we simplify and solve the issues, letting you focus on growing your business.

Given the complexity of global business, particularly given the context of international expansion, our commercial contracts team works closely with our global tax, international trade, employment, regulatory, competition and data privacy practices. This means you get holistic advice wherever you do business.

Our Better Contracts podcast is a great way to hear about key market issues. And our comparative guide of global contract laws provides summary answers on everyday commercial contract law questions in over 45 countries.
