Jamie’s experience representing federal government agencies in trade and customs matters helps clients navigate U.S. trade laws as they grow their businesses.

Jamie’s practice draws on her extensive experience handling cases in the U.S. Court of International Trade and learning the inner workings of the federal agencies involved. She advises clients on complex regulatory regimes, proactively assesses new trade programs, and handles all aspects of litigation as it arises.

In her previous role with the Department of Justice, Jamie represented U.S. Customs and Border Protection, the office of the United States Trade Representative, and the U.S. Department of Commerce in a broad range of matters related to tariff classification, valuation, preferential tariff treatment, duty drawback, country of origin, and the scope of antidumping and countervailing duties. She also co-led the United States’ defense of thousands of cases challenging duties assessed on goods from China under Section 301 of the Trade Act. Jamie’s time in the government showed her both best practices and common pitfalls in complying with import rules and regulations. She knows firsthand the importance of companies having a proactive advocate in their corner, and she is committed to keeping clients fully informed to ensure that they are protected.

Prior to the DOJ, Jamie represented clients in complex commercial litigation and international arbitration matters at a firm in New York. Immediately after law school, she interned at the ICC International Court of Arbitration in Paris, France and at the United Nations Assistance to the Khmer Rouge Trials in Phnom Penh, Cambodia.

Outside the Office

Jamie’s two young children usually keep her busy outside of work. With a love of the outdoors, her family fills summers with biking and beach trips, and she hopes to spend the winter months teaching her kids to ice skate and ski. When Jamie has free time she loves a good book, a concert or a weekend away with friends.
