Foreign trade law in Germany

Participating in foreign trade is a highly demanding business. This concerns world-wide corporations as well as medium-sized companies. Its importance is obvious – particularly in Germany, which is one of the largest exporters in the world. Especially in the context of the current "trade wars", this legal field is of ever-increasing relevance for companies and poses a serious challenge.
