“Greenberg Traurig’s global reputation, specifically in the international trade arena and its well-known culture of collaboration across sectors and markets, drew me to the firm,” Siegel Rabinowitz said.
Siegel Rabinowitz counsels domestic and multinational businesses on complex supply chain issues and other complicated challenges associated with trade, including mitigation of increased duty liability and compliance matters.
