ST&R’s local insight and global perspective allow us to put our clients’ needs at the forefront of trade policy development. For decades, our professionals have served as trusted advisors on behalf of our clients to U.S. government officials and agencies on customs and trade policy, which has enabled us to shape initiatives such as the Uyghur Forced Labor Prevention Act and the Customs Trade Partnership Against Terrorism. We also work closely with the public and private sectors on new and emerging areas of trade policy, including tariff measures, e-commerce, corporate social responsibility, forced labor, and environmental issues.

ST&R also actively collaborates with regulatory agencies to implement trade policies and laws. We have a long history of success representing client interests by informing regulators of the real-world impacts of proposed actions, offering expert testimony before administrative bodies, and crafting strategies to achieve goals that engage other affected parties.
