Trade Remedies (Anti-Dumping, Countervailing Duties and Safeguards)
Although Japan has imposed trade remedy measures against overseas suppliers only in a handful of cases, records show that the authorities have become active in initiating investigations recently.
Among the cases mentioned above, Oh-Ebashi represented a foreign company before the investigating authority in the only countervailing duty investigation conducted by Japan.
We counsel clients in anti-dumping investigations done by both the Government of Japan and investigation authorities overseas to minimize the effect that such investigations may have on the clients' businesses. We have counsels who have substantial experience working in the Government of Japan in connection with trade negotiations, disputes and regulations, including anti-dumping, subsidies and safeguards. We also work for the Government of Japan in relation to trade remedies and WTO dispute settlement matters.
