Participants in the modern, globalized economy must take into account the implications of a complex web of rules that include not only national laws, but also obligations that countries have undertaken as parties to international economic treaties and agreements. The World Trade Organization (WTO) agreements alone, to which over 150 countries are party, set out detailed rules pertaining to matters such as tariffs and customs formalities, subsidies, the development of product safety standards and other technical regulations, the protection of intellectual property rights, and market access for services.

Crowell & Moring lawyers help sovereign and private clients manage the effects of rapidly changing developments at the WTO in the following ways:

  • We provide trade remedies counsel that complements our WTO offerings, as trade remedy cases commonly provide the basis for WTO challenges and proceedings.
  • We advise clients on ongoing WTO issues and the current negotiating agenda.
  • We assist clients in expanding business opportunities through use of the WTO framework of international trade rules.

We have experience and are active in a broad range of substantive areas relating to the WTO, including the following:

  • Intellectual property
  • Government procurement
  • Taxation
  • Agriculture
  • Textiles
  • Tariff and customs matters
