The importance of Legal Assistance in Import/Export

The importance of Legal Assistance in Import/Export

Legal barriers are one of the most important aspects to consider before expanding into other markets and jurisdictions.
Both for the organization of sales abroad (export of goods) and the procurement from abroad (import), legal skills are in any case necessary. A knowledge of legal concepts is necessary in order to manage correctly many operations such as : payments, notices, retention of ownership of goods, testing and acceptance, after-sales services, protection of brands and industrial property. Recent COVID 19 pandemics made companies familiar with force majeure and hardship clauses and legal conditions.

The most common risks

The most common errors and legal risks that companies are often not aware of when they approach import / export issues:

  • the uncritical acceptance of solutions proposed by local potential partners in conflict of interest,
  • the lack of knowledge of the rights and obligations set by mandatory law in the country they operate,
  • the waiver or the granting of exclusive rights to a commercial partner without due consideration,
  • the lack of protection or loss of control over industrial property rights in favor of third parties (e.g. through the granting of trademark licences or other rights on commercial names, or the authorization to the use of domain names for registration purposes).
