Armitage International L.C. was formed in March 2005 by Richard L. Armitage, former U.S. Deputy Secretary of State. He is joined by four partners with extensive experience in government and business. Together, they provide multinational clients with critical support in the areas of international business development, strategic planning, and problem-solving.

Consistent with the reputation of its partners, Armitage International takes a practical, no-nonsense approach in support of its clients. The global marketplace is complex and demanding. Our goal is to use the valuable experience and contacts we have garnered through years of public service and private enterprise to facilitate clients’ success in such an environment.

Armitage International contributes to client decision making by offering keen insights into foreign and domestic markets, and an intimate knowledge of U.S.government requirements related to international business. Our analysis and advice is tailored to the very specific needs identified by the client. We have a trackrecord of success with advocacy and trouble-shooting for our clients in markets outside the United States. We also have successfully counseled U.S. and foreign clients on how best to manage their issues with the United States government and how to navigate through the arcane processes created by our federal bureaucracies.


Armitage International serves clients that focus on international business development in industries such as aerospace, communications, consumer products, construction, defense, finance and financial services, high-technology electronics, information technology, and transportation. Our Clients include Fortune 100 companies, as well as mid-market firms.
