Borden Ladner Gervais LLP has grown its international trade team with the addition of three new partners.

Milos Barutciski has advised Fortune 500 and Canadian companies about all aspects of international business regulation and compliance during a 30-year career. He was also engaged by the Canadian government to negotiate competition law co-operation agreements with the U.S. and the EU and by the World Bank to advise on regulatory reform in the Middle East and Africa.

Jesse Goldman is the incoming chair of the International Trade Committee of the Inter-Pacific Bar Association (IPBA) and Canadian delegate to the business and industry advisory committee to the OECD China Task Force. With expertise in cross-Pacific trade and investment matters, he has been counsel to commercial clients, trade associations and sovereign governments in more than 130 trade remedy investigations.

Matthew Kronby was the director general of Canada’s Trade Law Bureau and served as the bureau manager and lead counsel for more than 15 years. He has led his clients’ legal teams in trade disputes relating to softwood lumber, aircraft subsidies, biotech products, automotive trade and other investment arbitration matters under NAFTA.

“In an increasingly complex global trade environment, we are pleased to add this premier team to further complement BLG’s strength across Canada. We look forward to offering clients the depth of knowledge and shared experience of these highly regarded professionals,” said BLG national managing partner Sean Weir
