Led by the 'knowledgeable and responsive' Stephen Orava , King & Spalding LLP's 11-partner Washington DC-based team excels at representing petitioners in trade remedies actions. Stephen Jones is praised for his ability to 'effectively communicate with the government', and has consequently been at the forefront of work for domestic industries and manufacturers as petitioners in the context of the Trump administration's Section 301 and 232 tariffs against China. Both Jones and Michael Taylor are representing AK Steel regarding its request to expand the scope of the steel Section 232 relief to include downstream electrical steel products, including laminations, core assemblies, cores and transformers. Led by Orava from the US and able to leverage practitioners based in Geneva, the firm is also regularly involved in WTO proceedings, such as in its recent work for the Brazilian Sugarcane Industry Association in a challenge regarding Thailand’s subsidies to the sugar sector. Praised for her 'incredibly in-depth regulatory knowledge', Christine Savage heads the firm's export controls, economic sanctions and CFIUS practice, and brings significant credibility to the role by virtue of her private practice expertise as well as her experience as a former high-ranking official at the DOC. Other clients include Dow Chemical Company, US Magnesium, United Parcel Service and Domtar Corporation.
