McLarty Inbound

In the United States and Canada, McLarty Inbound supports foreign businesses with analysis, strategy, and advocacy efforts in Washington and beyond.

McLarty Inbound is led by Richard Burt, a distinguished former diplomat, skilled corporate strategist, and former McKinsey & Company partner with a keen sense of how Washington works. We draw on our global network, and on our Washington expertise, to bring our clients an approach that integrates our deep knowledge of their home countries with deep knowledge of Washington.

In Canada, we’ve helped build global government affairs capabilities for some of that country’s most well-known companies, helped US companies succeed in the Canadian market, as well as advised global clients on the implications of NAFTA renegotiation for their North American supply chains.



  • McLarty Inbound provides foreign firms seeking to do business in the United States with help on government relations—at the federal, state and local levels—strategic planning, market access, mergers and acquisitions, corporate communications, and political and economic risk issues.
  • We also assist with high-level commercial and political negotiations, as well as dealing with sensitive regulatory issues including the Committee on Foreign Investment in the United States (CFIUS) and the Treasury Department’s Office of Foreign Asset Control (OFAC).
  • The members of McLarty Inbound comply with all registration requirements applicable to advocacy and political advisory activities in the United States.
