How Jacob Helps Clients

Jacob represents clients in trade remedy matters, such as antidumping (AD) and countervailing duty (CVD) investigations, and other aspects of international law.  He helps level the playing field for U.S. manufacturers that are losing market share or suffering lower profits to obtain relief against unfairly-priced imports. He previously worked as an International Trade Compliance Analyst in the U.S. Department of Commerce conducting AD and CVD investigations, reviews and circumvention inquires for more than five years. He is admitted to the U.S. Court of International Trade and the Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit. Jacob is also involved in the pro-bono representation of unaccompanied minors in immigration proceedings.
