The Trade Partnership was founded by Laura Baughman in 1991 to meet a need for a consulting firm that could apply economic analysis to produce clear, concise and useful information about the impacts of trade policies. Our office in Washington, DC offers locally based trade and economic consulting services that combine economic analysis with the management of public and legislative relations.

In 2001, Laura Baughman joined with Dr. Joseph Francois and Dr. Dean Spinanger to form Trade Partnership Worldwide, LLC which offers an expanded global reach on issues related to trade policy and international markets.
