International Trade


Wiley Rein’s International Trade Practice, recognized by Chambers USA as one of the country’s elite international trade practices, represents clients in domestic and international trade regulation matters, market access issues, and dispute resolution. We apply our legal expertise, government relations experience, and public relations insight in both U.S. and international fora. As one of the largest and most diverse practices in the country, we can tailor our client teams to best meet the specific needs of corporations and associations.

Named an “International Trade Group of the Year” for eight consecutive years by Law360, our Team has significant experience with the many issues shaping industries’ global competitive environment. Chambers USA notes that our Practice “offers an impressive depth of expertise in trade remedies and policy matters, particularly when it comes to acting for local companies and organizations as petitioners.” We have a strong record of winning large and complex antidumping and countervailing duty cases on behalf of major U.S. industries, and are among a limited number of practices that regularly serve as principal counsel for major unfair trade investigations. For two years running, our group has been named “Legal Services Provider of the Year” by American Metal Market (AMM) as part of the publication’s annual Awards for Steel Excellence. 

In addition to providing competitive access in a global marketplace, our attorneys help clients navigate the policies and regulations governing our international economy. Our industry-leading export controls attorneys routinely help U.S. businesses and foreign businesses with U.S. affiliates navigate the complex requirements of the International Traffic in Arms Regulations (ITAR) and the Export Administration Regulations (EAR). The customs component of our Practice advises importers on every aspect of the importation process. Additionally, Wiley Rein has one of the most experienced economic sanctions and anti-money-laundering practices in the nation and provides a full range of Office of Foreign Assets Control (OFAC)-related services to leading companies and individuals across multiple industry sectors. We also have substantial experience assisting parties to foreign acquisitions, mergers, or takeovers in managing the Committee on Foreign Investment in the United States (CFIUS) review or investigation process, particularly transactions involving sophisticated technology or highly classified information.

Rounding out Wiley Rein’s leading International Trade Practice is our experience in trade negotiations, trade policy, and dispute settlement. Our attorneys have assisted the U.S. Trade Representative (USTR) in bringing and winning landmark market-opening World Trade Organization (WTO) cases against China’s export restrictions on raw materials and rare-earth elements. We regularly represent companies and industries that help USTR defend U.S. trade laws against WTO challenges. We also advance our clients’ important interests in key international negotiations, such as the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) and Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership (TTIP) free trade negotiations, and develop congressional support for clients' trade priorities.
