Ken has wide-ranging experience representing and advising publicly traded and privately owned manufacturers, exporters, and importers 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. With his advanced knowledge of the rules and procedures for calculating AD/CVD duties in market-economy and non-market economy proceedings, Ken has a history of successfully providing clients with legal and strategic advice on how they can remain competitive in the U.S. market by minimizing their potential duty liability.

While Ken’s practice is firmly rooted in trade remedy counseling, he also advises companies on other regulatory compliance matters that affect cross-border trade. Ken frequently advises importers on customs matters before U.S. Customs and Border Protection, including country of origin requirements (for marking purposes), prior disclosures, tariff classifications, and valuation rules.
