Attorney Adrienne Braumiller
Without fail, international news has daily stories about actions taken by the Trump administration affecting international trade. There are now special duties on aluminum and steel, new tariffs on billions of dollars of imported Chinese products, tariffs affecting the EU countries, Mexico, Canada, and subsequent retaliation on U.S. imports by our top trading partners. Let’s not forget, the ongoing renegotiation of NAFTA, withdrawal from the Iran sanctions program, and proposed new export controls on technology.
