International Trade & Supply Chain

Smooth moves.

Husch Blackwell's International Trade & Supply Chain team helps clients maximize the opportunities and manage the challenges inherent in the globalization of supply chains. Companies that move goods across borders rely on our team’s knowledgeable guidance on everyday matters, such as obtaining tariff classifications, as well as our experience with enforcement, lobbying, litigation, risk assessment and complex trade strategies. 

Many of our professionals gained substantial practical knowledge while serving at key federal regulatory agencies, courts and congressional committees. Our team’s primary location in Washington, DC, also offers close access to pertinent agencies and decision-makers. When necessary, we work closely with select firms in foreign countries to ensure comprehensive solutions meet individual needs.
