Alan Price Named President of the Committee to Support U.S. Trade Laws

July 10, 2012

Alan H. Price, chair of Wiley Rein's International Trade Practice, has been named president of the Committee to Support U.S. Trade Laws (CSUSTL).  Mr. Price will lead a broad group of companies, trade associations, labor unions and individuals committed to providing a level playing field for American manufacturers, workers, producers and farmers.

"I look forward to continuing the strong leadership tradition of CSUSTL," said Mr. Price. "CSUSTL does great work to defend and strengthen U.S. trade laws, including playing key roles in the successful passage of trade law legislation and advising U.S. negotiators to ensure that the rights of American businesses and workers are preserved and enhanced. I look forward to working with all of the CSUSTL members as we strive to achieve our goals."

CSUSTL's members span the manufacturing, technology, agriculture, mining, energy and services sectors and are dedicated to ensuring that unfair trade laws are not weakened through legislation or policy decisions in Congress, international negotiations or through dispute settlements at the World Trade Organization.

Mr. Price-who serves as lead counsel to the Wind Tower Trade Coalition in U.S. antidumping and countervailing duty cases involving renewable energy products-has more than 25 years of experience counseling clients in complex international trade regulatory matters.  His work includes trade litigation involving public and government relations issues, bilateral and multilateral agreements, trade legislation, customs regulation, Foreign Corrupt Practices Act compliance, escape clause investigations and Section 301 cases.  Regularly ranked as a "Leading Lawyer" by Chambers USA, Mr. Price has been commended by clients for possessing an "expansive range of expertise that incorporates the full gamut of trade work."
