WTO law, market access & international trade and customs law

In 2009 I established my own solo law practice, the Law Offices of Amelia Porges, focused on international trade practice and policy, litigation before the World Trade Organization (WTO) and free trade agreements, trade negotiations, legislative advocacy, customs issues, market access and trade in digital products. 

In the years since then I have worked with companies, trade associations and governments to advance their goals for access to markets worldwide. I help them achieve those goals through rights-focused advocacy, and - when necessary - through litigation.  

Operating in Washington D.C. near the Federal trade policy agencies and the U.S. Congress, I follow trade policy developments across the globe and work with my clients to solve problems and advance agendas. I bring to my clients a passion for all things concerned with trade policy, international trade law and digital trade, and a dedication to excellence.
