Jarrod M. Goldfeder is an international trade attorney whose practice focuses on a broad array of international trade litigation and policy matters. Drawing on more than two decades of experience, Jarrod represents and advises publicly traded and privately-owned manufacturers, exporters, and importers, as well as trade associations and foreign governments, in antidumping (AD) and countervailing duty (CVD) proceedings before the U.S. Department of Commerce (DOC) and the U.S. International Trade Commission (ITC). He also has significant litigation experience in appeals of AD/CVD determinations before the U.S. Court of International Trade and the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit and has participated in numerous oral arguments.

Jarrod is well-known for his advanced knowledge of the rules, procedures, practices, and technical aspects of calculating AD/CVD duties in both market-economy and non-market economy proceedings.  Jarrod always takes a “hands on” approach when working with clients to collect and analyze the sales and cost information required by DOC.  By immersing himself in clients’ financial and cost accounting data and remaining involved in all aspects of each representation, Jarrod has established a track record of successfully providing clients with legal and strategic advice on how they can remain competitive in the U.S. market by minimizing their potential AD and CVD duty liability in these complicated proceedings.  Following a similar approach, Jarrod has achieved many victories for clients in injury proceedings before the ITC.

Jarrod has also represented foreign clients in dispute settlement proceedings before the World Trade Organization and provides advice on the rules of the various WTO agreements. Another key area of Jarrod’s practice is advising and representing importers in customs matters before U.S. Customs and Border Protection, including country of origin requirements (for marking purposes), prior disclosures, tariff classifications, valuation rules, rules for becoming an importer of record, and special rules regarding Sections 232 and 301 actions.

Jarrod has applied his deep insider knowledge to represent clients in the United States, Australia, Brazil, Canada, China, Ecuador, India, Italy, Japan, Malaysia, Mexico, Norway, South Korea, Taiwan, Thailand, and Turkey across multiple industries including steel and steel products, seafood, paper, energy, chemicals, petrochemicals, polyester film, textiles, and consumer goods.

Jarrod has also represented individual clients in various pro bono matters before U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services.

Jarrod is a regular commentator for Urner Barry’s Foreign Trade Data: Trade Alert on international trade issues affecting U.S. seafood importers, and is a past member of the Law360 International Trade Editorial Advisory Board.

 

Prior to Joining Trade Pacific

Jarrod was senior counsel in the international trade group of a prominent international law firm based in Washington, D.C., where he worked for eleven years. Before entering private practice, Jarrod began his career in the AD/CVD enforcement division at the U.S. Department of Commerce, International Trade Administration, where he served as a senior case investigator for six years with primary responsibility for managing all aspects of AD and CVD proceedings investigations, administrative reviews, new shipper reviews, and scope and anti-circumvention inquiries against imports of a wide range of products from around the world. His responsibilities included performing quantitative analyses of data submitted by foreign respondents, conducting more than 20 on-site sales and cost verifications of foreign respondents (and their U.S. affiliates) or foreign governments, drafting agency determinations, calculating AD duty margins through complex SAS® computer programs, monitoring a high-profile suspension agreement, and preparing administrative determinations pursuant to remands from the U.S. Court of International Trade.

 

Representative Matters

Jarrod has achieved significant victories on behalf of his clients in major trade remedies litigation cases, including:

  • represented various Korean manufacturers of various steel and steel products – including, but not limited to, standard pipe, welded line pipe, oil country tubular goods, corrosion-resistant steel, heavy walled rectangular pipe and tubes, and steel nails –in achieving zero,de minimis, or very low AD and CVD rates in investigations and reviews before the DOC and defending such decisions in subsequent court appeals.
  • represented the largest Korean manufacturer of low melt polyester staple fiber in an AD investigation at the DOC that resulted in a finding of no dumping.
  • represented a U.S. company in arguing successfully at the ITC that hydrofluorocarbon components are a “separate like product” from hydrofluorocarbon blends and that such components had not injured a U.S. industry.
  • represented various Taiwanese manufacturers of solar cells and modules to obtain low AD rates in reviews before the DOC.
  • represented the largest Korean manufacturer of bottom mount refrigerator-freezers in an AD/CVD case that resulted in a negative injury determination before the ITC.

  • represented a large Taiwanese manufacturer of narrow woven ribbons with woven selvedge in an AD investigation at the DOC that resulted in a finding of no dumping.
  • represented the Government of Taiwan steel before the DOC in defending against allegations of subsidization in an investigation concerning non-oriented electrical that resulted in the exclusion of the largest exporter from CVD duties.
  • represented the Ecuadorian shrimp industry in defeating allegations of dumping at the DOC and allegations of injurious subsidization at the ITC.
  • represented the Norwegian salmon industry in achieving the revocation of the AD and CVD orders against Atlantic salmon from Norway at the ITC.
