GDLSK is pleased to announce that Brandon M. Petelin (https://www.gdlsk.com/people/petelin-brandon/) has accepted an invitation to become “of counsel” to the firm and will continue to practice in the firm’s Washington DC office, where he focuses on representing foreign companies and U.S. importers in international trade matters before the U.S. Department of Commerce, U.S. International Trade Commission, Court of International Trade and Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit. Brandon brings several years of varied experiences and dedication to the firm and its clients. We wish Brandon many years of continued success.
The Court of International Trade ruled in favor GDLSK client Kaptan, a rebar exporter, when it affirmed the U.S. Department of Commerce’s prior decision that duties for Nur, a Turkish shipbuilder, should not apply to scrap metal it sold to Kaptan. The Court found that Nur’s scrap metal was a byproduct, and not primarily dedicated to Kaptan’s rebar production.
