Government Relations & Political Management

Because many cases involve controversial political issues that reach beyond technical legal questions, Shearman & Sterling’s International Trade & Investment practice takes a strategic and comprehensive approach designed to affect the political and legal decision makers. The group monitors policy as it develops and, as appropriate, institutes and manages political, public relations and media campaigns developed to shape the content and outcome of policy, legislative or regulatory initiatives.

The International Trade & Investment practice has extensive experience with the US Congress, the Administration, federal agencies and foreign governments, and has worked in all aspects of government relations, including intelligence gathering, issue monitoring, strategic planning, advocacy, drafting and moving legislation, working with the media, and applying as well as mobilizing Congressional, business and constituent support.
