Crowell & Moring’s International Trade Group Named to Law360’s "Practice Group of the Year" for Second Consecutive Year

Washington, D.C. – February 2, 2017: Crowell & Moring LLP is pleased to announce that its International Trade Group has been recognized as one of Law360’s “Practice Group of the Year” for international trade for the second consecutive year. For this listing, Law360 recognizes firms that achieve “victories in litigation and closed the big deals to make their mark among clients and throughout the legal industry.”

Law360’s profile on the firm notes, “Crowell & Moring’s international trade group continued to shore up its offerings in its core areas of customs, trade remedy and export controls and sanctions work in 2016.” It also reports that the Group “has about 25 lawyers in New York, Washington, D.C., and Brussels, and it’s sort of a one-stop shop for companies looking to sort out any trade issues.”

In highlighting some of the Group’s recent accomplishments, the article notes that the firm’s “trade remedies practice scored one in its defense of Russian steel producer JSC Severstal in an investigation focused on cold-rolled steel imports, which was also the first instance of a Russian producer being subject to a countervailing duty investigation.” It also mentions that Crowell & Moring “represented Meridian Products LLC in its fight at the U.S. Court of International Trade over the scope of anti-dumping and countervailing duty orders on Chinese aluminum extrusions.”

Partner Jeffrey L. Snyder, who chairs the firm's International Trade Group in the firm's Washington D.C. and Brussels offices, said to Law360 that when he began at the firm in 2002, its international trade group consisted of just three lawyers, but it has since added depth in every one of the core areas.

Snyder said, “A lot of trade groups tend to be very strong in one of these [areas], and we’ve consistently invested in making each one of these a world-class, strong competitor, rather than having dabblers who cut across lines. The idea, from 2002, has been to build each one of these into a strong practice.”
