Trade Policy & Regulations
OFW’s trade attorneys and government relations professionals collaborate to advise clients on trade policy matters and provide our clients the perspective, advice and insights we have gained through years of experience on legislative and regulatory matters. Our expertise extends to both the Congress and Federal departments and agencies, including those within USDA, such as the Foreign Agricultural Service (FAS), as well as the United States Trade Representative (USTR) and the Departments of State and Commerce. We pride ourselves on our substantive trade expertise. By its nature, trade often requires longterm strategic thinking. Our experts have dedicated themselves to projects taking years to complete, be it negotiation, litigation, or dispute resolution. We seek to define issues clearly and work with our clients to evaluate all available options, using our expertise to select the most effective strategies. We then move forward with the chosen option until we reach a positive outcome. In recent years OFW has been quick to adapt to the unorthodox approach to trade that has characterized the current Administration, engaging in frequent congressional and agency outreach on behalf of clients as change occurs rapidly in the trade arena.
