Litigation can be an important component to a business's overall trade strategy - whether used as a preemptive measure to prevent immediate injury or as a last resort when all other options of dispute resolution have failed. Drinker Biddle provides a wide range of trade litigation services - from traditional customs litigation to lawsuits against other private parties. Our trade litigation lawyers have successfully obtained duty and tax refunds of hundreds of millions of dollars on behalf of clients.
We have handled matters before the U.S. Department of Commerce and U.S. International Trade Commission, as well as the U.S. Court of International Trade, and the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit, as well as proceedings under the North American Free Trade Agreement and before the World Trade Organization.
In addition to our experience representing foreign and domestic clients in antidumping and countervailing duty cases, we have been involved in Section 201 safeguards cases and have litigated a variety of unfair import cases under Section 337.
In trade litigation, as in all services provided by our customs and trade team, our goal is put clients in the best position to be competitive and secure their interests in the marketplace.
