1 INTEGRATED SUPPLY CHAIN SOLUTIONS Meeting the challenge of trading across borders

2 ONE TEAM TO GUIDE YOU THROUGH YOUR ENTIRE SUPPLY CHAIN CUTTING COSTS AND REDUCING RISK In today s fast paced global economy, success or failure is often determined by the performance of the supply chain. Whether it be speed to market, raw material sourcing, access to new markets, or cost control, the supply chain is no longer a support function but is central to the operation of businesses operating internationally. The UK s decision to leave the European Union will have a significant impact on businesses that operate in and trade with the UK and the EU. It is critical, now more than ever, that those businesses understand and anticipate the likely impacts of Brexit on their supply chain management. Proactive businesses will be best placed to meet the challenges and maximise the opportunities of Brexit. With an international team of specialists, DLA Piper has local lawyers on the ground to help clients identify opportunities and resolve issues in any part of their supply chains wherever in the world they arise and in whatever industry. Our aim is to cut our clients costs and reduce their risk. The team is described as experienced, highly knowledgeable and very competent, and well placed to act on any matter with a multi-jurisdictional dimension. Chambers DLA Piper has particular expertise in customs and indirect taxation. Clients praise the team as very knowledgeable and the best. Legal Integrated Supply Chain Solutions

6 OUR SERVICES Trade policy and environment Navigating through the rules of international trade is a complex exercise, but can help you gain improved access to new markets, for instance through the preferential market access schemes, duty suspensions and the introduction of tariff rate quotas for imports. We regularly represent our clients in international trade negotiations, making sure their interests are represented and duly protected. We also advise on broader corporate governance issues that apply to their international operations. We regularly challenge trade protectionist measures and unjustified market access barriers using international trade rules. In light of the Brexit vote, DLA Piper is able to assist our clients in preparing for and mitigating the impact of any changes to their access to EU markets and those markets where preferential access is gained by a free-trade agreement between the EU and a third country.

Advising companies on how to optimise the impact of Russia s accession to the World Trade Organisation and identifying associated trade opportunities. Tax and transfer pricing Having an organisation structured in a tax efficient way can help you reduce your costs. We regularly help our clients with developing beneficial worldwide transfer pricing strategies and dealing with the BEPS Actions. We also advise on all aspects of taxation and act for clients of all sizes assisting national and multi-national companies to address the complex challenges of tax in their domestic and international commerce and business operations. This includes advising clients on optimum structures for inward and outward investment, both on a domestic and cross-border basis. Advising one of the world s leading sportswear retailers in relation to the restructuring of its intra-group licence and supply transactions. Advising a leading global chemical company on a 25-county integration and supply chain rationalisation project following the acquisition of a global competitor. Network restructuring As global markets continue to open up and develop at rapid rates, we have advised many clients on a wide range of strategies to manufacture their goods in new markets, be it by way of contract manufacturing, joint ventures or by investing in the construction and operation of new facilities. Many international companies will be considering the implications of Brexit on their decision making with regards the structure of their business. We have extensive experience in assisting multinational companies in supply chain management and distribution arrangements in Europe, Asia, and more broadly. In so doing, we advise our clients on all required contractual and regulatory matters in structuring their operations, including distribution and retail operations. Advising a multinational apparel retailer on its expansion into Asia, including tax structuring, foreign direct investment, corporate formation, product regulatory compliance, transfer pricing, and customs valuation. Advising and negotiating all contractual arrangements pursuant to which one of the world s leading vehicle manufacturer s has agreed, via a joint venture, to a range of its vehicles in Russia. Procurement and contract negotiations We have extensive practical experience of advising clients on the myriad of contractual relationships that bind them together with their suppliers, customers, licensors, distributors and partners. In so doing, we help our clients manage the resulting complexity efficiently and cost effectively whilst also helping to manage risks, enhance commercial positions and co-operation so as to encourage profitable long term relationships that deliver quality and value for money in a timely manner. Advising an aircraft manufacturer on a programme to supply over 5,000 components.
