International Trade Remedies

Providing international trade solutions.

Our international trade remedies law team advises clients on complex challenges involving antidumping and countervailing duty (AD/CVD) cases, quotas or increased duties under escape clause provisions of U.S. law, intellectual property violations litigated at the U.S. International Trade Commission, import surges under the Generalized System of Preferences (GSP), and anti-circumvention and scope issues arising from duties or quotas.

In working with international trading companies, foreign trade associations and corporations worldwide, our international trade remedies team closely coordinates trade remedies strategy with U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) strategy to ensure goods are imported efficiently and with proper duty rates imposed. We also counsel companies involved in mergers and acquisitions that could be affected materially by international trade remedies issues.
