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.
