Gottlieb & Associates serves a multi-national clientele as the only Canadian law firm dedicated for more than 30 years to the practice of customs and international trade law.
GOTTLIEB & ASSOCIATES is adept at handling the special problems related to the movement of goods, services and intellectual properties across borders. We represent our clients’ interests vis-à-vis Canadian government officials, administrative tribunals and the courts, in Canada and abroad. We also safeguard their interests in the legislative process and in government relations by making submissions on their behalf to government administrators, cabinet members, other members of Parliament and Parliamentary committees and sub-committees. In particular, we direct, prepare and make submissions to government agencies in connection with policy and legislative initiatives in international trade and related fields.
Our practice focus is on advising our clients and their lawyers on Canadian legal matters germane to the international trade environment in which they do business. In addition to the Canadian laws of customs and international trade which relate to the regulation of imports and exports, we advise clients on laws which are tangential to their trading businesses.
Our approach to the practice of law is unique in Canada inasmuch as our attorneys focus their energy and resources on the legal aspects of customs and international trade. For this reason, we are often called upon by general or corporate counsel for specialized advice. Where required, GOTTLIEB & ASSOCIATES integrates and coordinates other legal as well as non-legal services. This allows GOTTLIEB & ASSOCIATES to provide the very best service to its clients in its field of specialization while, at the same time, hand selecting appropriate counsel and lay people in other specialized fields to assist its clients.
The philosophy of GOTTLIEB & ASSOCIATES is quite simple. We pride ourselves on our ability to work very hard and to find creative solutions for our clients. We combine this work ethic with vast experience in providing our clients with the most comprehensive advice available in the field of Canadian customs and international trade.
Clients of GOTTLIEB & ASSOCIATES benefit from its results oriented approach to the practice of law. They obtain competitive advantages in their market places by utilizing the firm’s value added services which include not only resolution of their legal problems but also assistance which enhances their ability to compete and win in their business environments.
In addition, GOTTLIEB & ASSOCIATES represents its clients in the most time and cost effective manner possible. Upon request, we establish initial and on-going budgets and work with clients to implement cost controls. We work closely with our clients’ in-house counsel, other executives, and staff so as to eliminate duplication of effort and to ensure cost efficiency.
