Nathan Rickard has represented domestic industries in legal and regulatory matters related to international trade since 2001.
As a litigator, Mr. Rickard has participated in the successful prosecution of antidumping duty, countervailing duty, and safeguard petitions before the U.S. Department of Commerce and the U.S. International Trade Commission (USITC) for the flat-rolled steel, softwood lumber, and warmwater shrimp industries. Mr. Rickard also has substantial experience in appellate proceedings regarding USITC and Commerce determinations before the U.S. Court of International Trade and the Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit.
Mr. Rickard has also worked extensively with federal agencies to enhance and improve enforcement of trade remedies on imported merchandise. He has assisted in developing analytical tools and methods that improve the targeting and identification of fraudulently-traded imports. Through the use of these tools and methods, Mr. Rickard has prepared commercial intelligence analysis regarding specific circumvention and evasion tactics that have significant adverse market impacts.
Mr. Rickard’s practice extends to coordination with a wide array of federal and state regulatory agencies to broadly address trade distortions. He works closely with client industries to develop strategies for interacting with individual government agencies. In addition to the formulation of an initial strategy, Mr. Rickard works with clients to prepare and present substantive analysis and argument in support of their objectives.
