“TPP start date means faster changes on tariffs” by Dale Smith, Law Times News

Law Times News quotes Toronto/Ottawa lawyer, Clifford Sosnow, in an article on the start of the TPP and its implications on tariffs.

Clifford Sosnow, a partner and co-chairman of the international trade and investment group at Fasken LLP in Ottawa, says that for clients who are interested in procurement rules, clients will have three different sets of rules — the World Trade Organization rules governing procurement between Canada and the United States, CUSMA between the United States and Mexico and the CPTPP between Canada and Mexico.

“Understanding what can be a challenge, what can be potentially discriminatory, what can be accessed without worrying about discrimination is going to be a call to the lawyers to ask which agreement applies, what do I need to be concerned about and can I bid on this project?” says Sosnow.
