Miller & Chevalier's International practice offers clients experience with a wide variety of trade and investment policy issues and with most aspects of the increasingly interrelated areas of international legal and regulatory compliance covered by U.S. laws and international agreements.

Our lawyers and other professionals are recognized in the areas of antidumping, countervailing duty, safeguards, and market disruption proceedings; customs; trade policy and legislation; civilian and military export controls; economic sanctions; the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act (FCPA) and international anti-corruption laws; U.S. anti-boycott regimes; WTO and NAFTA dispute settlement; WTO and bilateral negotiations and compliance; and global regulatory compliance. Members of our International practice have held senior government positions at the U.S. Departments of Commerce, State, and the Treasury, as well as the National Security Council. While serving in many of these positions, they were responsible for developing important laws and regulations that are critical to international business today. We have years of experience solving client problems in U.S. and global markets, drawing when necessary on our extensive network of proven trade professionals in key markets around the world.

Our clients have involved us centrally in a series of seminal cases, including some of the largest and most significant countervailing duty, antidumping, safeguards, WTO dispute settlement, NAFTA binational panel, and NAFTA Extraordinary Challenge cases ever to be litigated. We have been involved in many major U.S. bilateral and multilateral trade negotiations, as well as the related agreements and legislative implementation and regulatory processes during the past two decades. In recognition of the depth and breadth of our international practice, we are also regularly called upon by some of the world's largest multinational corporations to design and implement international regulatory compliance programs, perform internal audits and investigations, and defend against enforcement actions.
