BRC Partner Cortney O’Toole Morgan was formally commended by the outgoing Ambassador of Colombia to the United States for her work in achieving enactment of the Colombia-US Free Trade Agreement in 2011.  Ambassador Gabriel  Silva recognized Ms. Morgan’s efforts, stating “I would like to thank you and Barnes Richardson & Colburn for your unwavering support for the U.S.-Colombia Free Trade Agreement.  Without your efforts, we could not have achieved the goal to secure the agreement and advance economic ties between our two countries.”
