Schagrin Associates Welcomes Jeffrey Gerrish to the Firm

Schagrin Associates is pleased to announce that Ambassador Jeffrey Gerrish, who previously served as the Deputy United States Trade Representative from 2018-2020, acting President and Chairman of the Export-Import Bank of the United States from 2018-2019, and partner at the law firm of Skadden Arps, has joined our firm as a partner. Ambassador Gerrish has decades of experience litigating international trade disputes in private practice. In his roles at USTR and EXIM Bank, he served at the highest levels of the U.S. government in devising and implementing U.S. trade policy, leading critically important trade negotiations, and developing and executing strategies to address trade barriers and unfair trade practices in countries around the world.

Schagrin Associates is an international trade law and lobbying firm founded in Washington, DC in 1984. Founder and President Roger B. Schagrin said, “I spent twenty years as a private lawyer working alongside Jeff on behalf of our respective clients and know firsthand what a great trade litigator he is. His experience at USTR and EXIM Bank – as well as the respect he enjoys on Capitol Hill and in capitals across the world – will help us deliver even more value to our clients.”

Ambassador Gerrish stated, “I have worked extensively with Roger and his team at Schagrin Associates and have long admired them for their litigation prowess and the outstanding results they have obtained on behalf of their clients. I can also say that during my time at USTR, I saw how effectively Schagrin Associates advocated for their clients. I am looking forward in the next stage of my career to working on behalf of existing and new clients at Schagrin Associates to find creative solutions to the challenges and opportunities presented by international trade.”

In a final comment, Schagrin added, “In recent years, the firm has been fortunate in bringing on top-notch talent in order to lead Schagrin Associates into the future, and we are excited to welcome Ambassador Gerrish to the team.”
