For most companies, global customer and supplier relationships have become part of everyday life.

Friedrich Graf von Westphalen advises companies that conduct foreign trade, freight forwarders, insurance firms and logistics providers on all aspects of customs and foreign trade law.

Our focal areas in this practice are anti-dumping and foreign trade law, export control and sanctions law, market-order law and subsidy and aid law, public procurement law and WTO law. Our tax consulting portfolio comprises sales tax, customs and excise law.

Our team will advise you on the design of civil law contracts and financing as well as credit assurance. We represent companies and their senior employees in criminal and monetary-fine proceedings. Our preventive work includes, in particular, compliance counseling.

In litigation, we represent companies before national agencies and the European Commission as well as before financial and administrative courts all the way up to the European Court of Justice.

From requests for information to appeals to legal action, we command all of the legal instruments needed to account for the particularities of each sector.
Our key focus is on the pharmaceutical/health care, food, electronics, new media, textile and industrial plant sectors.
