Doing business abroad presents limitless challenges and opportunities. Properly assessing foreign markets requires a keen understanding of the competitive landscape, existing governmental regulations, the culture, and the politics. Our experience, local knowledge, and relationships help firms and non-profits succeed at home and abroad.
We work with organizations seeking to leverage existing federal government programs to help finance international investment. Our efforts include guidance and coordination with the United States Trade Representative, Export-Import Bank, Overseas Private Investment Corporation, International Trade Commission, and Department of State.
We have substantial experience advising clients on a broad range of multilateral trade deals, including NAFTA, CAFTA, TPP, and the USMCA. We regularly consult with Congress, craft letters to the U.S. Trade Representative, and help navigate complex regulatory approval proceedings. These include filing for product exclusions, submitting comments on proposed tariffs or trade negotiations, and preparing testimony.
We act as general contractor on feasibility studies for companies looking to make capital investments abroad, especially in emerging economies needing advanced infrastructure development.
We maintain high-level relationships with policy makers, business leaders, and investors in over 20 countries. Our international network of associates offers unparalleled access and expertise throughout the Americas, Europe, Asia, and Africa.
