CANADA | U.S. – CANADIAN CROSS BORDER TRANSACTIONS
Canada is the United States top trade partner, and the second largest trade partner for Texas (behind Mexico). The size of the Canadian and Texas economies is comparable in size. Although there is much talk in the Canadian press these days about Canadian companies expanding to the United States, McCullough Sudan has been representing Canadian corporations doing business in the United States, and American companies expanding into Canada for years.
Doug McCullough is a director of the Canada-Texas Chamber of Commerce and regularly works with Canadian companies expanding operations into the United States, as well as American companies expanding into Canada.
