Tim Brightbill Discusses Commerce’s Preliminary Determination on Chinese Wooden Cabinet Imports

Law360
October 7, 2019

Timothy C. Brightbill, partner in Wiley Rein’s International Trade Practice, was quoted in an October 4 Law360 article regarding the preliminary antidumping duties on Chinese wooden cabinets announced by the U.S. Department of Commerce. The U.S. government decided to impose an antidumping rate of 262% after finding that Chinese imports had been sold domestically at unfairly low prices.

Law360 reported in March 2019 that the American Kitchen Cabinet Alliance (AKCA) urged Commerce and the U.S. International Trade Commission to place tariffs on Chinese cabinet imports that allegedly were sold at artificially low prices because of Chinese government subsidies.

Mr. Brightbill, who represents the AKCA, told Law360 that Commerce’s decision reinforces the effort to fight China’s unfair trade practices.

“This is a strong win and another important step for American manufacturers and American workers,” Mr. Brightbill said.

Mr. Brightbill was also quoted on the preliminary determination in Bloomberg, IndustryWeek, and Taipei Times. Additional coverage appeared in Reuters.
