Read Frequently Asked Questions

Emphasis will be placed on litigation strategies for various fora, including U.S. administrative, U.S. appellate, and international dispute settlement bodies.

Description

This presentation will first briefly review the key laws that govern U.S. international trade. Thereafter, it will analyze important issues that the exporting/importing community needs to keep in mind; the program will also address major issues that U.S. domestic industries should consider.

Compliance with the rules governing U.S. international trade means compliance with a variety of regimes: a) U.S. trade and Customs laws, b) the multilateral trading regime established by the Uruguay Round international trade agreements, and c) relevant bilateral and geographically-limited trade agreements. Inter alia, this complex and interconnected network of laws and treaties provides for dispute settlement through litigation. With respect to litigation options, the strategies and issues often differ for a) an importer bringing goods into the United States, versus b) a foreign producer desiring to export into the U.S. market, versus c) a U.S. domestic manufacturer. To provide context, this presentation will first briefly review the key laws that govern U.S. international trade. Thereafter, it will analyze important issues that the exporting/importing community needs to keep in mind; the program will also address major issues that U.S. domestic industries should consider.
