Partner Paul C. Rosenthal was quoted in a Reuters article titled “U.S. Plans ‘To Toughen Rules’ vs. Unfair Foreign Trade Practices.” The article discussed U.S. plans to toughen rules against what it sees as unfair foreign trade practices, proposing a number of changes likely to impact China, its biggest import supplier.
“I think they will be helpful to domestic industries who are having problems with unfair foreign trade practices,” said Mr. Rosenthal, who has represented many clients seeking trade relief. They should not lead to a surge of new anti-dumping or countervailing duty cases, but will improve the effectiveness of relief when it is provided, he said.
