WTO and International Trade

Gaopeng maintains one of the largest WTO and international trade remedy practices in China and is widely acknowledged as a market leader in this area. Our team of trade lawyers serves clients in anti-dumping, countervailing and safeguards actions taken by the Chinese government and other jurisdictions. The team led by the veteran counsel Mr. Lei Wang, a former trade negotiator in the Chinese Ministry of Commerce (MOFCOM), consists of two rising trade lawyers, Steven Yu and Lin Yang, and ten other lawyers with experience in trade work.

International clients that the team has served include well-known ones such as Arcelor steel, Yukos and American Paper & Forest Association.  Notable Chinese clients include Beijing Matsushita, Asia Dekor, Haier, Eagle Ceramics, Capital Steel, TCL and Belle Shoes. Over the past decade, Gaopeng lawyers have represented clients in trade proceedings involving in a wide rage of subject products, including steel, paper, laminate flooring, plywood, electronics, bicycles, chemicals, shrimp, furniture, ceramics, textiles, granite, plastics, shoes and numerous manufactured goods.

In the recent Chinese antidumping investigation on kraft linerboards, the team has successfully represented its international client to obtain a repeal of an anti-dumping order issued by MOFCOM through administrative re-consideration proceedings. This case has become a landmark case among the over 40 anti-dumping cases initiated by the Chinese Trade Authority (MOFCOM).

Our trade lawyers also have been invited to advise on WTO subjects for governments, industrial associations and international organizations.

Chambers Global: the World’s Leading Lawyers for Business (2006、2007 and 2008 edition) listed Gaopeng lawyers as leading lawyers in China in the area of WTO/International Trade
