International Trade and Policy

Our attorneys have a wealth of experience providing advice and representation in international trade and trade-policy matters. Whether the goal is to penetrate foreign markets, address unfair trade practices, open the U.S. market or otherwise respond to a competitive situation, we are prepared to meet the challenge. 

Our team can bring petitions or oppose them in a wide variety of U.S. trade-remedy proceedings. These proceedings sometimes involve unfair imports under U.S. antidumping law (discriminatory pricing), countervailing duty law (subsidies), Section 301 (trade practices in foreign markets) or Section 337 (intellectual property rights infringement).  At other times these U.S. proceedings involve safeguard actions linking imports to market disruption. We have also represented clients in non-U.S. trade-remedy proceedings and trade disputes arising from multilateral and regional trade arrangements. Our team regularly advises businesses, governments and associations on trade-policy considerations related to: existing and proposed U.S. and foreign legislation and rulemakings; ongoing multilateral and regional trade negotiations and agreements, including WTO, GATT, GATS, NAFTA, APEC, FTAA, MERCOSUR and South and Central American FTAs; U.S. preferential trade arrangements, including GSP, CBI and ATPA; and non-tariff trade barriers, product standards and technical barriers to trade.

We represent clients in administrative proceedings, litigation, dispute resolution and arbitration.  Our team is especially proud of our recent trailblazing pro bono work, which successfully helped eligible workers obtain Trade Adjustment Assistance.
