Led by Andrea Ewart, DevelopTradeLaw, LLC was created to provide creative and custom-tailored solutions to companies doing business internationally and to the trade-related issues of governments in developing and emerging economies.

The firm works with businesses and with individual entrepreneurs to minimize the costs of dealing with Customs and Border Protection agency. The Customs and Border Protection agency regulates the import and export of goods and services to and from the United States. In doing so, it enforces its own import and export regulations, as well as those of such U.S. government agencies as:

  • US Food & Drug Administration (FDA)
  • US Department of Agriculture (USDA)
  • Patent & Trademark Office (USPTO)

The firm helps importers and exporters to comply with the regulations that the Customs and Border Protection agency oversees, minimizing the delays, fees, and possible penalties that add to the cost of doing business. Our location in Washington, D.C. provides easy access to these agencies, allowing us to “your voice” in Washington, D.C.

The firm also works with governments to address trade-related issues, including the development of WTO-consistent trade and customs laws and regulations.

The firm provides quick and personalized attention. Andrea Ewart is a creative thinker and problem-solver, and invites you to allow her to use her abilities and experience on your behalf. We also offer a variety of alternative fee schedules to the dreaded “billable hour”. Your investment will be affordable and provide an invaluable return.
