World Trade


Successive rounds of GATT/WTO negotiations and free trade area negotiations such as those leading to the NAFTA have presented opportunities for those importers and domestic industries that are alert to the developments in these negotiations and that present their views effectively.

Barnes/Richardson has represented clients in every round of GATT/WTO negotiations since 1948, and is well versed in the intricacies of such international trade negotiations. The Firm now brings this experience to the proceedings of the World Trade Organization, EU and other multi-lateral organizations.
