Chilean salmon antidumping and countervailing duty defense
Our attorneys represented the entire Chilean salmon industry in a US antidumping investigation, obtaining an exclusion from the antidumping order for two producers and low dumping margins for the three other investigated producers. Our attorneys continued to obtain low rates for individual producers in administrative reviews, setting the stage for a negotiated settlement. We also obtained revocation of an antidumping duty order for the largest global salmon producer, and a precedent-setting U.S. Court of International Trade ruling (Marine Harvest v. United States) regarding antidumping rates applicable to merged companies. We also achieved the termination of the countervailing duty investigation with a Department of Commerce determination of no subsidies.
