Partner Kathleen W. Cannon was featured in the Law360 article “US Shelving Industry Harmed By Chinese Imports, ITC Says.” The article discusses the recent International Trade Commission notice, stating that the domestic steel shelving industry is being materially harmed by cheap Chinese imports. This paves the way for the Department of Commerce to issue a series of anti-dumping duties intended to even the playing field. The investigation kicked off following an August 2014 petition from Edsal Manufacturing Co. Inc., the largest U.S. producer of boltless steel shelving. Edsal is represented by Ms. Cannon, Paul C. Rosenthal and R. Alan Luberda. "The affirmative case result is allowing Edsal to expand its operations into Gary, Indiana, and to hire new workers, rather than laying off workers as it had been forced to do when large volumes of low-priced imports entered the U.S. market last year," Ms. Cannon said. "This case is a good example of how the remedial effects of the U.S. trade laws are not limited to only large industries but also can benefit small industries and their workers."
