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 navigate the global economic and political landscape, develop commercially-focused strategies to influence policies and develop partnerships worldwide, and gain access to foreign governments, ministries, agencies, and international organizations.

For over three decades C&M International has helped 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. We’ve worked across nearly every sector and been at the cutting-edge of global policy discussions – including on the digital economy, global health, and intellectual property, to name just a few.

Our directors and consultants have worked at the top levels of government — including service 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 in the administration, Congress, and diplomatic community, 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
  • Develop strategic partnerships and initiatives to advance thought leadership and support business goals

We also provide advice on matters relating to U.S. trade and economic policy and regulatory developments and strategic engagement with the U.S. government and international organizations.
