Trade Remedies (AD/CVD/Safeguards)
Trade Remedies (AD/CVD/Safeguards)
Our International Trade attorneys have initiated more trade remedy proceedings on behalf of more diverse domestic industries in the past two decades than any other law firm, and our record of success is one that few, if any, can match.

That’s why Chambers USA calls our team “one of the most highly regarded practices in petitioners’ side antidumping issues in the USA, with a phenomenal win rate and a hugely experienced team that offers considerable expertise in trade remedies.”

Our skill in trade remedies work enables us to take on some of the most challenging matters—long-odds efforts—and transform them into wins for clients, securing the issuance of orders and the imposition of duties that aid not only companies and industries, but workers and communities.

We go to bat for major U.S. industries and smaller producers alike, representing clients in proceedings conducted by the U.S. Department of Commerce, the U.S. International Trade Commission, and the U.S. Trade Representative and in appeals before the U.S. Court of International Trade and the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit.  Our work spans a vast range of industries:  steel, foundry products, copper and brass, agricultural products, chemicals, fibers and textiles, high-tech material handling, packaging products, heavy machinery and construction products, among other industries.

We also represent U.S. and foreign companies in third-country trade remedy actions (antidumping, anti-subsidy and safeguards) in courts in Latin America, Africa, Europe and Asia.

We are currently representing domestic industries in the following cases:

  • Tool Chests and Cabinets from China and Vietnam
  • Cold-Drawn Mechanical Tubing of Carbon and Alloy Steel from China, Germany, India, Italy, Korea, and Switzerland
  • Aluminum Foil from China
  • Carbon and Alloy Steel Cut-to-Length Plate from Austria, Belgium, Brazil, China, France, Germany, Italy, Japan, Republic of Korea, South Africa, Taiwan, and Turkey
 

We have represented domestic industries in successful AD/CVD investigations leading to the issuance of orders and the imposition of duties on numerous products. Recent examples include:

  • Stainless Steel Sheet and Strip from China (2017)
  • Cold-rolled Steel Flat Products from Brazil, China, India, Japan, South Korea, Netherlands, Russia and the United Kingdom (2016)
  • Hot-rolled Steel Flat Products from Australia, Brazil, Japan, Korea, the Netherlands, Turkey, and the United Kingdom (2016)
  • Corrosion Resistant Steel from China, India, Italy, Korea, and Taiwan (2016)
  • Polyethylene Terephthalate Resin (“PET Resin”) from Canada, China, India, and Oman (2016)
  • Boltless Steel Shelving from China (2015)
  • Prestressed Concrete Steel Rail Tie Wire from China and Mexico (2014)
  • Wire Rod from China (2014)

  • Kitchen and Appliance Shelving from China (2009)
  • Small Diameter Graphite Electrodes from China (2009)
  • Activated Carbon from China (2007)
  • Polyester Staple Fiber from China (2007)
 

We have represented domestic industries in numerous successful AD/CVD sunset reviews leading to the continuation of orders. Recent examples include:

  • Polyester Staple Fiber from China (2017)
  • Stainless Steel Plate from Belgium, South Africa and Taiwan (2016)
  • Iron Construction Castings from Brazil, Canada and China (2016)
  • Hot Rolled Carbon Steel from Russia (2016)
  • Stainless Steel Wire Rod from Italy and Japan (2016)
  • Cut-to-Length Carbon Steel Plate from China, Russia, and Ukraine (2015)
