How David Helps Clients
David focuses on helping U.S. manufacturers—especially those whose financial performance has been negatively impacted by the presence of low-priced imports in the U.S. market—enhance their competitive position by advocating on their behalf in proceedings before the U.S. International Trade Commission and the U.S. Department of Commerce. As a member of the firm’s International Trade & National Security practice group, David works on a team that is purpose-built to use federal antidumping and countervailing duty (AD/CVD) laws for the benefit of U.S. producers that have been harmed by unfair import competition.
David has represented both petitioners and respondents in AD/CVD proceedings before the U.S. Department of Commerce and the U.S. International Trade Commission, drafted or co-drafted the full range of legal documents called for during AD/CVD investigations and administrative reviews, and developed the legal and technical skills to effectively advocate on behalf of clients in the context of these proceedings.
David has experience advising clients on an assortment of other trade-related and national security matters, including Section 301 duties, Foreign Agent Registration Act (FARA) reporting obligations, product-specific import license and permit requirements, payments and refunds of duties, compliance with U.S. Customs and Border Protection’s (CBP’s) reporting requirements, voluntary disclosures, and exposure to civil penalties stemming from non-compliance with reporting requirements.
David’s litigation experience includes investigating claims and drafting complaints and briefs on behalf of clients in the Court of International Trade.
