Comment: This firm highly recommended for customs and trade is very active at the interface with compliance. The Berlin team around Sachs, which advises primarily on sanctions and export control, has developed particularly well. The lawyers work closely with the international Noerr offices, e.g. in Moscow. Clients such as Misumi Group increasingly consult the team on expansion and implementation of internal compliance programs.

A Munich partner represented a German chemicals producer in proceedings over illegal chemical exports and advised Mittelstand companies in connection with the threatened revocation of their AEO status as Authorized Economic Operators.
