Protectionism

Digital forces driving the new protectionist agenda

Globally, Protectionism is on the rise, we know this after conducting a study which shows the country’s top economies have increased restrictive trade measures by more than 7,000 since 2009.

Protectionism is complex and can be positive or negative depending on the market a business is in. However, protectionism impacts any company that wishes to trade internationally, including those whose business involves the creation and protection of intellectual property.

That's why we’ve created a guide dedicated to intellectual property and protectionism. The report includes:

  • A global picture of protectionism in G20 countries
  • Findings of research with 500 of the UK’s CEOs and General Counsel
  • Expert insight from leading academic Graham Dutfield, Professor of International Governance, University of Leeds.

Further insight into protectionism

Our research and commitment to supporting and guiding General Counsel and their businesses through protectionism will carry on well into 2018.

We've spoken to experts from across key sectors such as property, life sciences, tech, manufacturing, energy and those able to talk about America's role in global protectionism. Over the next few months we'll be releasing more information. If you'd like to talk to anyone from Gowling WLG in the meantime, please contact Gordon Harris.
