|who we are.
|We are international trade lawyers
who have been involved in scores of antidumping and
countervailing duty proceedings and litigated dozens of cases before the
U.S. Court of International Trade and the Dispute Settlement Body of the World
Trade Organization. In our work, we have seen several importers bankrupted
by unanticpated significant increase in import duty liability because
their foreign supplier did not cooperate adequately during antidumping
or countervailing duty proceedings. This site was developed to
provide importers with information about the current and historical
antidumping and countervailing duty rates of potential suppliers to
enable them to make more informed sourcing decisions. All this information is publicly available, but is
scattered over several different websites. Plus, you really need
to know where to look to find it. So if publicly available
information is not accessible, what is it worth?
The information is mostly inaccessible to importers -- the same group that by law is liable for paying antidumping and countervailing dutes. Importers need to be able to make informed sourcing decisions, including what products are covered by antidumping and countervailing duty orders, what companies are subject to what rates. Moreover, most importers, purchasers, and others don't really understand what is going on in antidumping and countervailing duty investigations, or how to deal with U.S. Customs and Border Protection when they bill importers for increased duties (or just keep excess deposits).
So, we decided to collect current U.S. antidumping and countervailing duty information and organize it in an accessible manner. We've made access to the relevant information free for importers, purchasing departments, customs brokers, freight forwarders, lawyers, trade analysts, academics, and anyone else interested in current antidumping and countervailing duty information.
We are always seeking ways to improve how the information is presented. Please share your ideas -- firstname.lastname@example.org.
