Trade remedies or trade defense instruments (TDI) are an extensively used trade policy tool to protect domestic manufacturing industries by imposing anti-dumping, anti-subsidy/countervailing, and/or safeguard measures on imports from third-country manufacturers.

Our uniquely global and multidisciplinary TDI team helps you navigate TDI issues around the world to achieve the best outcome efficiently.

We have locally qualified, experienced lawyers in more than 20 jurisdictions around the world, including in major users of TDI such as Australia, Brazil, China, the EU, Türkiye, and the US, as well as in major targets of TDI like Indonesia, Japan, Malaysia, Taiwan, and Thailand.

Our lawyers have been involved in all aspects of TDI cases around the world, including all types of investigations and reviews. The team also has a strong track-record in litigating TDI cases before domestic courts, such as the Court of Justice of the EU and the US International Trade Court, and before panels and the Appellate Body of the World Trade Organization.

In addition to lawyers at all levels of seniority needed to support you, our team further comprises trade economists and trade accountants, who assist with the data-driven demands of investigating authorities and complex economic analyses to support your case.
