1. Why is understanding foreign national legislation critical for Canadian companies operating globally?
In the words of the Government’s Trade Commissioner Service “it is critical for Canadian companies to be fully aware of the specific national legislation and processes in the markets where they operate “.
This allows Canadian companies to expand into markets outside North America.
Thanks to the CETA between Canada and Europe, Canadian companies can develop and market their products and services in all 27 countries of the European Union without having to set up a company or subsidiary there.
This trade agreement gives Canadian companies equal access to public contracts in the European Union on the same basis as European competitors.
2. How can Canadian companies ensure legal compliance in international markets ?
They need to turn to legal advisors in international law, and more specifically experts in CETA such as our law firm Descriaux Avocats LEGAL AECG | CETA.
3. What challenges do Canadian businesses typically face when operating abroad ?
Europe and particularly France is a highly administrative country, and Canadian companies do not know the law applicable in the European Union. It is difficult, if not impossible for a Canadian company to go through the necessary procedures and steps on her own.
4. How can your law firm assist Canadian companies in navigating international legal matters
By combining legal and judicial expertise, technical know-how of administrative procedures and mastery of new technologies, our law firm has built up a strong reputation for providing tailor-made support to its Canadian clients.
