McLarty Associates has built a global team of seasoned international specialists with expertise in all the major markets of the world.
Our professionals are former diplomats, trade negotiators, intelligence officers, journalists, and business people. Most of our staff base in Washington, DC and New York, but our overseas associates can be found at our representative office in Beijing, as well as in in Mexico, Brazil, Colombia, Brussels, Turkey, Egypt, UAE, Jakarta, Vietnam, Japan, Philippines, Thailand, Hong Kong, and India.
Our approach is interactive. We do not produce generic white papers, or craft strategies for others to execute. Rather, we work closely with our clients to analyze the international opportunity or problem, assess the tools available to the client, develop the strategy, and execute it – all in close coordination with the client.
We do not represent foreign countries, nor act as registered lobbyists in the United States for our clients. Through a strategic partnership with Covington & Burling, our clients can benefit from one of Washington’s best lobbying and advocacy practices.
Our clients are generally Fortune 200 companies with substantial global footprints, but we also advise emerging companies venturing abroad for the first time. We have been delivering measurable results for our clients for over ten years, and many of our clients have been with us for nearly that long.
Our financial markets practice, based in New York, advises financial institutions on politico-economic risk issues that affect their investment and risk management strategies.
Our film and entertainment practice advises major Hollywood studios and filmmakers on internationally-themed media projects, from story generation through scriptwriting to physical production challenges overseas.
Our food and agriculture practice advises investors, corporations, and non-profits on their overseas work in the industry.
