Dorsey partner Kent Schmidt looks at the unqiue challenges of navigating California's laws and the impact the legal system in the "Golden State" is having on business, residents and consumers in Calfornia and across the country.
This blog is the outgrowth of a newsletter that Dorsey Partner Bill Perry created to monitor US trade and other litigation against US and Chinese companies. Before representing US and Chinese companies in international trade cases for more than 20 years, Bill worked at the US International Trade Commission (“ITC”) and Commerce Department on various trade cases in Washington DC.
Based on his experience, he can categorically state that there is now an ongoing trade war between the United States and China. The best kept secret, however, is that the real targets of these US cases are not Chinese companies, but US companies that import products into the United States. US importers are the companies liable for antidumping and countervailing duties in cases against China. US import companies are also liable in intellectual property/337 cases, False Claims Act/Customs Fraud and Products Liability cases. The primary target of this trade war is the US companies involved in trade with China, not the Chinese companies. This is truly a brave new world.
