Cassidy Levy Kent is an international law firm with offices
in Washington and Ottawa. Our practice is focused on helping our clients
address international trade and investment issues — whether they involve U.S.
or Canadian trade controls, trade remedy litigation, dispute settlement
proceedings under the World Trade Organization (WTO) and bilateral and regional
free trade agreements and investment treaties, or negotiations and other policy
The lawyers at Cassidy Levy Kent have decades of experience
as partners in the international trade and investment practices at some of the
largest, and most prestigious, law firms in Canada and the United States. We
started our firm with the objective of combining the experience and
high-quality service for which large firms are known with the flexibility and
personal attention of a smaller firm.
Our policy experience includes developing and implementing
bilateral, regional and multilateral negotiating strategies, and assisting clients
to ensure that their interests are adequately protected in the final
legislative and regulatory implementation. Our U.S. lawyers have worked on
every major U.S. bilateral, regional and multilateral negotiation since the
GATT Tokyo Round, as well as all major U.S. trade legislation since the Trade
Act of 1974. Our Canadian lawyers have served as advisors in the Trade Law
Bureau of the Department of Global Affairs Canada, and have litigated a variety
of WTO, NAFTA (now USMCA), and other trade disputes.
Our attorneys advise clients on a broad range of
international trade and investment issues under U.S., Canadian, and
international law. We have a proven record of success in U.S. and Canadian enforcement proceedings involving customs, export controls, and economic sanctions.
With respect to trade remedy litigation, our lawyers and professionals have worked
on literally hundreds of cases, and we have extensive experience with the full
range of legal, economic and accounting issues arising in these proceedings.
Our approach is to provide our clients with detailed,
hands-on involvement in matters that is based on years of experience and
expertise to add value directly to the issues our clients face and the
strategies they develop. Our commitment to cost-effective staffing allows us to
handle even the smallest matters efficiently. At the same time, by using the
network of relationships we have built up over the years, we have the ability
to assemble the most effective teams of lawyers, economists, and public and government
relations experts available.
