Mark Moran - Steptoe & Johnson LLP

Within: International trade

A stalwart of the Washington DC international trade landscape, Steptoe & Johnson LLP's 'deep bench' provides 'concise and usable advice' to corporates, trade associations and governments across the spectrum, from export controls and sanctions advice to high-profile litigation, including prominent WTO mandates. In the trade remedies realm, as well as its involvement in many of the most high-profile and complex disputes between the US and China, the team, led by Mark Moran and Eric Emerson, also recently secured a notable victory at the ITC for the Canadian government in its subsidies dispute with Boeing regarding competition from Canada-based airline manufacturer Bombardier. Led by Susan Esserman, the team also recently secured another notable anti-dumping/countervailing ITC victory, when on behalf of numerous major US consumers/importers, including the American Beverage Association, the commission unanimously found that the imports of PET resin did not cause or threaten injury. Pablo Bentes excels at counseling and litigation (including WTO disputes) for Latin American sovereigns and companies; alongside Esserman he recently successfully secured exemptions for the Brazil Steel Institute on the Section 232 tariffs exercised by the Trump administration on steel imports. Moran, Matthew Yeo  and Amy Lentz continue to represent British Columbia Lumber Trade Council in the long-running softwood lumber dispute with the US, and are key members of the team that also includes trade remedies experts Joel Kaufman and Thomas Trendl, who 'know the dumping laws and practices of the agency like no one else'; Foreign Corrupt Practices Act (FCPA) expert Lucinda Low; 'knowledgeable' sanctions/export control practitioners Brian Egan  and Edward Krauland; and senior statesman Richard Cunningham.
