Food and Retail
In this increasingly globalised world the potential for buying and selling is arguably greater than it has ever been. Needs in one part of the world for items as basic as food can be met by suppliers thousands of miles away; creating vast and varied opportunities.
Such opportunities, however, do present challenges. Concluding deals that cross borders and then transporting the items from country to country can be complex. With nations varying in their openness to imports and exports and each having its own legal system, anyone looking to trade across borders has to ensure they are fully compliant with the law in each and every country involved in a deal. If problems arise, they have to be managed by those with expertise in managing investigations that cross jurisdictions. Speed can be of the essence – especially when it comes to perishable items – so any legal issues need to be resolved as swiftly as possible.
Our legal teams know how to ensure you receive the very best representation in the countries where you trade or are looking to trade. We can advise on how to approach possible business ventures to ensure you are legally compliant and aware of all possible risks relating to bribery, money laundering and even sanctions.
If problems arise due to the activities of your staff or others working for you or representing you, our corporate investigations teams can get to the heart of the issues and advise on the best possible course of action. We are also recognised for our ability when it comes to high-stakes commercial disputes, meaning we can maximise your ability to regain what is yours or what is owed to you should a deal not go to plan.
At Rahman Ravelli, we use our skills to ensure that buying and selling is as trouble-free and rewarding as possible for our clients.
