In this episode, we’re talking with Bill Perry, International Trade Attorney with Harris & Moure, about global trade trends, deals, and disputes, and how you can ensure your company is protected and prepared.

  • For Trade Adjustment Assistance for Companies, see this blog post.
  • Also to see how TAA for Companies works, see this link, from the Midatlantic Trade Adjustment Assistance Center for a 10 minute video on how four companies were saved by the TAA program. One company was almost killed by imports from China and now is exporting to China.
