ABOUT US

EXCEPTIONAL SERVICE. PREDICTABLE PRICES

CGT Law is an Australian law firm committed to providing high quality legal services to customs brokers, freight forwarders, transport companies, importers and exporters. 


What makes CGT Law different from most law firms is that we focus on the legal issues that impact international supply chains and logistics professionals.  


Business brings a lot of uncertainty.  This is magnified when it comes to international trade. A lawyer's job is to reduce uncertainty, not add to it.  We take the time to ensure we understand your unique situation so that we can give clear direction and an accurate fee quote.
