C&M International, Crowell & Moring’s affiliate consulting firm for international policy and regulatory affairs, helps multinational organizations navigate the global economic and political landscape, develop commercially-focused strategies to shape policies, and develop partnerships worldwide. Our team has decades of experience at the highest levels of government, including service at the White House, the Office of the U.S. Trade Representative, the Departments of State and Commerce, the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office, and with leading business organizations. We have 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, among others. C&M International’s representative work in Latin America has included launching a regional, multi-stakeholder coalition to develop and implement harmonized codes of ethics and regulatory practices to promote ethical business practices for health industries, developing an anti-illicit trade advocacy campaign in Brazil for a global consumer goods company, assessing political risk in a number of Latin American countries for a potential investment by a multinational medical device company and a global U.S. reinsurer, and analyzing various bilateral and regional trade agreements to identify tariff-related cost savings for a major agricultural chemical company.

C&M International is also recognized as the preeminent private sector consultancy helping companies achieve business and public policy goals via the Asia Pacific Economic Cooperation (APEC) forum, which brings together heads of state and high-level government officials with the private sector, academia, and civil society from 21 Pacific Rim countries, including three in Latin America. We also analyze other regional developments – including free trade area negotiations between the EU and Mercosur, the emergence of the Pacific Alliance, and discussions among the TPP-11, known formally as the Comprehensive and Progressive Agreement on Trans-Pacific Partnership.

Global business challenges – and opportunities – often require policy experience, political advocacy, and relationships within governments, in addition to legal counsel. We counsel clients on strategic engagement with governments and relevant stakeholders to:

  • 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; and
  • Develop strategic partnerships and initiatives to advance thought leadership and support business goals.
