Wiley Rein’s Daniel Pickard Profiled as Law360 ‘International Trade MVP’
Washington, DC —Daniel B. Pickard, a partner in Wiley Rein’s International Trade Practice, was profiled by Law360 as a 2016 “International Trade MVP.” He is one of five attorneys nationally to be named to the highly competitive list in the trade category. Law360 describes the “elite slate of attorneys” chosen as MVPs as having “distinguished themselves from their peers by securing hard-earned successes in high-stakes litigation, complex global matters, and record-breaking deals.”
The December 14 Law360 article cites Mr. Pickard’s “passionate trade law advocacy for steel giants and small-town manufacturers,” and describes his career-long service in the international trade field—which included service in the General Counsel’s office for the U.S. International Trade Commission.
The profile highlights Mr. Pickard’s work on behalf of the U.S. steel industry, assisting in securing antidumping and anti-subsidy duties on cold-rolled steel from numerous foreign companies. He has also obtained antidumping victories for the Diamond Sawblade Manufacturers Coalition and Metallurgical Products Co., as well as representing clients in matters of economic sanctions, export controls, and the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act.
Mr. Pickard said he derives a great deal of satisfaction working on behalf of clients to fight unfair trade practices. “At the end of a workday, you can say you helped keep jobs in the United States,” he said.
As a feather in the cap of an outstanding career, Mr. Pickard was appointed earlier this year to serve on the Defense Trade Advisory Group, a panel that advises the U.S. Department of State’s Bureau of Political-Military Affairs on defense trade-related topics.
The competition for the 2016 class of Law360 MVPs was especially intense this year—with editors selecting the winners in a variety of practice areas from over 1,000 submissions.
