When global business is your business, C&M International is your international policy and regulatory affairs consulting firm of choice. We help Fortune 100 corporations and other multinational enterprises gain access to foreign governments, navigate ministries and agencies, and influence policy and legislation worldwide.
Established more than 25 years ago, C&M International helps companies and the industry associations that represent them create the political and regulatory conditions that maximize commercial success. Our team includes more than a dozen senior policy professionals and trade negotiators with decades of experience helping clients, at home and abroad, break down international barriers and resolve challenges posed by agencies, officials, and politicians.
Our directors and consultants have worked at the top levels of government — including service on the White House Council of Economic Advisors in the United States, with the office of the U.S. Trade Representative, and at the U.S. Department of State, U.S. Department of Commerce, and U.S. Patent & Trademark Office — and in appointments as senior trade officials and negotiators for the governments of Australia and New Zealand, among other positions of leadership.
Our professionals have played roles in the creation of virtually every major international trade agreement between the United States and the countries and markets of the Asia-Pacific region, Europe, South America, the Middle East and Africa. We have extensive, personal contacts in Washington trade policy circles, at trade and foreign ministries across the globe, and in major international trade organizations, including the World Trade Organization (WTO), the World Health Organization (WHO), the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation (APEC) forum, and the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD).
For every engagement, we ask a simple question: "What is the fastest, best way to achieve the results our clients want?" With that information, we regularly help companies and organizations:
- Understand and enter new markets
- Shape policy and regulation in markets, countries, regions, and internationally
- Resolve problems, disputes, and other challenges involved in doing business internationally
- Realize trade-related cost savings
We also advise sovereign governments on matters relating to trade policy and development, particularly in negotiations with the United States and at the WTO.
