Our International Trade Practice Group guides clients through complex trade rules and restrictions to address injury caused by imported goods, as well as to successfully import and export their products and services. We are noted for our capability in protecting U.S. manufacturers against unfairly traded goods and for our insight into the politics surrounding trade issues. We also regularly help our U.S.-based clients overcome barriers to entry in foreign markets, such as defending clients in trade cases brought against U.S. exports in Mexico, South Africa, and various European and Asian countries. Beyond our significant experience with antidumping (AD), countervailing duties (CVD) and other trade remedies, we have robust export, customs and international dispute resolution capabilities. Our team responds quickly to client crises – such as when clients face embargoed goods and penalty proceedings – and also counsels clients on tariff preference programs and compliance with customs and trade regulations including classification, valuation and country of origin.
