Integrating the practical realities of international commerce with the complex legal and regulatory framework in which it is conducted, Brooke Ringel helps companies, associations, and coalitions across various industries effectively navigate U.S. trade law and policies. Her agility and experience with trade remedies litigation enables her clients to compete and thrive in hyper-competitive global markets, while ensuring that unfair trade practices do not go unchecked.

Brooke recognizes that her ability to craft workable solutions and advocate for her clients can mean the difference between declining production, sales, and profitability, and the freedom to invest in expansion, innovation, and job creation. That’s why her responsiveness and commitment to her work and clients are hallmarks of her practice. Brooke views her client relationships as partnerships using the law to define and attain commercial goals.

Brooke represents U.S. manufacturers in international trade remedies litigation against unfairly traded foreign imports before the U.S. International Trade Commission and the U.S. Department of Commerce. By deeply understanding an industry, its members, and the market, Brooke excels at harnessing complex facts, legal issues, and data to obtain favorable results.

Brooke also represents importers and exporters on the legal—and often highly technical—aspects of complying with the complicated rules for doing business across borders.

When her clients draw the unwanted attention of regulators, Brooke guides them through disclosures, remediation, investigations, audits, and risk mitigation in a way that focuses on resolving matters with minimal cost and disruption.

Prior to joining Kelley Drye, Brooke served as associate vice president at the Pharmaceutical Research and Manufacturers of America (PhRMA), where she led the association’s work on global intellectual property advocacy and supported trade policy issues.

In addition, Brooke served as a special assistant attorney general for the District of Columbia, litigating and trying a wide range of civil matters on behalf of the District. Brooke is active in the Customs and International Trade Bar Association, the Association of Women in International Trade (WIIT), and the WIIT Trust, and holds leadership roles in her religious and children’s school communities.

International trade challenges are multi-dimensional, and the solutions should be, too. Using law, policy, and data analysis, I am dedicated to helping my clients’ businesses succeed and grow.”
