In the course of doing international business, surprises occur. We put our network, experience, and knowledge to work when a political solution is needed to change a costly regulation, reverse an unfair commercial decision, or when a political solution is needed to get your product to market.
- When a client's trade secrets were misappropriated in a foreign market, we energized our contacts in the foreign and U.S. governments and used the opportunity of ongoing bilateral negotiations to successfully address the issue
- When our client's product was misclassified by customs officials in a foreign market, we called on our connections at the top levels of the foreign and U.S. governments and used existing international trade rules to have the decision reversed, saving our client over $1 million in wrongly levied duties
- When our client was about to lose access to its biggest export market because of proposed regulatory changes, we helped the two governments reach an agreement to keep the importing market open to our client's exports
