PODCAST: U.S.-Canada Trade Relations – What Corporations Need to Know — C&M's First 100 Days Series

Feb.24.2017

In the latest podcast for Crowell & Moring's "First 100 Days" series, Jim Flood, chair of the firm's Government Affairs Group, sits down with Ian Laird, co-chair of the firm's International Dispute Resolution Group, to discuss the state of U.S.-Canada trade relations. Ian is a Canadian-qualified lawyer and previously served as chief of staff to a Canadian cabinet minister, as well as a senior political aide to the Ontario Minister of Energy. Ian represents companies engaged in U.S.-Canada trade and business relations and has provided counsel on NAFTA issues for more than 15 years. Ian also worked on the earliest NAFTA investor-state arbitrations involving each of the three NAFTA state parties.

Discussed in this 20 minute podcast recorded on Feb. 17:

  • Some potential strategies for the Canadian Government and Canadian companies to succeed in working with the Trump Administration.
  • Potential “tweaks” to NAFTA with respect to Canada, and redefining U.S.-Canada relations.
  • Views of the Republican-controlled U.S. House of Representatives, and a different approach from the U.S. Senate.
  • How Canada's immigration policies might impact business.
  • Potential timeline for any changes, and what companies can do now.
