Our lawyers also provide representation before international institutions, from United Nations agencies to regional development banks, foreign governments’ ministries and their and our embassies.

Our lawyers have assisted clients in devising and drafting proposed legislation, ordinances, and amendments, and in preparing testimony and other submissions offered by clients, sponsors, witnesses, and advocates.
