Seneca Creek has worked for and with major industry associations and companies, as well as individuals seeking to place natural resources investments. In the forestry and wood products sphere, as well as in international trade proceedings affecting other industries, Seneca Creek has conducted numerous projects that have positioned its clients to successfully navigate complicated environmental and governance requirements. Projects have included market development and regulatory impact analyses, international trade studies, and participation in trade adjudication cases. Seneca Creek has worked with U.S. aluminum producers in securing new commodity trade classifications in the HTS and organized an engagement program with CBP to help ensure effective enforcement of trade remedies affecting aluminum imports.
We find creative solutions to challenges facing our clients and provide analysis for advocacy. We explain regulatory and administrative processes having to do with land management and international trade, and can prepare associations and companies for governmental hearings, filing certain regulatory submissions, and identifying gaps and opportunities for making successful management decisions. Our goal is to ensure our client's success.

Alberto Goetzl is the founder and president of Seneca Creek Associates, LLC. Mr. Goetzl served on the staff of US International Trade Commission (USITC) and has worked for and with major industry associations and companies. He has written on a wide range of subjects ranging from sustainable forest practices to trends in global forest products supply and demand. He pioneered a supply chain risk assessment for US hardwoods and authored a landmark study on the illegal logging issue and its impacts on U.S. industry competitiveness. The study led to enactment of amendments to the Lacey Act in 2008. Mr. Goetzl is past Chairman of the Maryland Sustainable Forestry Council. When he’s not “working” professionally, Mr. Goetzl manages a horse farm that his family owns in the Frederick, Maryland area. The farm has a small woodlot of mixed upland hardwoods that he is bringing into a more productive condition.
