International Trade

For any organization or company involved in agriculture and agribusiness, international trade will determine the success of their corporate strategies. Our trade practice offers an array of services to meet the needs of clients who are concerned about the implications of existing and pending bilateral and multilateral trade agreements.

The United States and the European Union have incrementally advanced their talks on the Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership (TTIP), while the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) negotiations are heading toward conclusion. These pending agreements and current agreements, including the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) and the Uruguay Round Agreement establishing the World Trade Organization (WTO), offer challenges and opportunities for businesses as they come under strengthened international disciplines.

The demands of global competitiveness require that agribusiness companies and organizations be actively involved in further negotiations to liberalize trade and to resolve tariff and non-tariff disputes. The experience and expertise of our attorneys and trade policy experts will greatly benefit our clients as we guide them through these processes. In that regard, we have a proven trade record in representing and advising companies and non-profit associations on a range of international policy concerns that affect their business interests associated with the negotiation, implementation, and enforcement of trade agreements.

Our attorneys have much successfully represented importers and exporters in a wide range of international trade issues involving USDA export programs, sanitary and phytosanitary measures as well as matters before the U.S. Trade Representative, the International Trade Administration, the U.S. International Trade Commission, and the U.S. Customs and Border Protection, as well as other federal agencies that deal with international trade regulation.
