Mark R. Berry, Partner and Olesya Sidorkina, Associate, both based in the firm’s Washington, DC office, will participate in the D.C. Bar’s upcoming lunch program. Their presentation, titled “Section 232 Cases: Protecting U.S. National Security or Risking International Trade Wars?”, will feature a panel of experienced practitioners with diverse backgrounds discussing the new steel and aluminum tariffs – the products covered, countries exempted and those in limbo, and the product exclusion process. The panel also will explore WTO actions and threatened actions arising from this Administration’s deployment of Section 232, Section 301, and Section 201 tariffs, and whether, especially in the case of Section 232, we are protecting national security or risking international trade wars.
