Anti-Dumping and Subsidy Disputes
In the areas of anti-dumping and countervailing duty (anti-subsidy), and other trade actions including those relating to imposition of quantitive restrictions (quota) tariff rate quota and surtaxes, we devise strategies to manage the risks of Canadian and/or foreign trade actions. In connection with these strategies, we advise clients on import and resale price practices, market strategies so as to ensure appropriate capturing of market share, and tailoring of requests for government assistance to minimize risks of trade actions. We counsel importers and exporters involved in trade actions by making representations to government officials and at administrative Tribunal hearings and seeking review of existing orders or appealing decisions to the courts or international agencies as appropriate.
