Trade Disputes & Compliance

Trade Disputes & Compliance

International trade is a complex endeavor that comes with its share of risks. Among the many laws and regulations that govern such activity are those designed to protect domestic industries from imports of certain products that are sold at less than fair value (dumping) or that benefit from subsidies provided through foreign government programs (countervailing).
