Cleary Gottlieb’s international practice in 16 major commercial centers throughout the world helps clients effectively address a broad range of trade and customs matters. The firm’s dual presence in Brussels and Washington, D.C., gives us ready access to the key regulatory bodies in the EU and the U.S. and allows us to provide coordinated transatlantic counsel on multinational transactions.

  • In Brussels, Cleary lawyers advise and represent clients in proceedings before the European Commission and, when circumstances warrant, before the European Court of Justice and the European General Court.
  • In Washington, D.C., our lawyers advise domestic and multinational clients on U.S. sanctions, export control laws and foreign investment controls, and work with private and public clients on the negotiation and interpretation of bilateral and multilateral trade agreements with the United States.
