The trade group within Baker's Global Business Team provides excellent strategic and substantive advice to companies navigating global business transactions. Their work ranges from ITAR and EAR export classification analysis to Directorate of Defense Trade Controls (DDTC) filings. The group is proactive with their clients to protect them from inadvertent violations. Additionally, they counsel companies regarding import HTSUS classifications, determining country of origin for imports and filing for exclusions to import duties. And, the Global Business Team regularly advises clients on all aspects of cross-border transactions both into the U.S. and around the world with its own experts in local laws. From the Firm's 22 offices located in key markets throughout the southeastern United States and in Washington, D.C., and with the assistance of an extensive global network of local counsel and other professionals, the Global Business Team has helped U.S. and non-U.S. clients take advantage of global opportunities in more than 90 countries spanning six continents. The more than 75 members of the Global Business Team routinely work with U.S. clients in China, Japan, the United Kingdom, Central and Eastern Europe, Africa, Canada, Mexico, and Central and South America. The group's cross-border attorneys are fluent in more than 15 languages.
