International Trade Policy

The Intersection of Trade Policy and Litigation

International trade law represents a unique intersection of law and policy that requires direct experience and honed skills in guiding clients through changing political environments and maintaining awareness of distinct business objectives. AMS TRADE operates at the heart of the intersection of trade policy and litigation – a dedicated position we have held for many decades. We are effective guardians of the international trade policy of businesses, trade associations, and nongovernmental organizations.
