International Trade

We are the leading law firm in WTO practice in Jordan, the UAE, and the region. We have extensive experience in the interrelationship between the WTO rules and jurisprudence with national trade law practice. 


Our areas of expertise in this regard are intellectual property, customs, import licensing, agriculture, standards, and investment.

 

We assist international and local companies in overcoming market entry barriers caused by either violation of the rules by competitors; or misinterpretation of the WTO rules and related laws by governmental agencies.
