Nathaniel Maandig Rickard


Nathan Rickard has represented U.S. industries in matters related to the trade remedy laws since 2001.

Nathan has assisted in developing and prosecuting petitions for antidumping, countervailing, and safeguard duties before both the U.S. Department of Commerce and the U.S. International Trade Commission. Following the implementation of a trade remedy, Nathan has substantial experience in administrative review proceedings before both of those federal agencies and appellate proceedings before the U.S. Court of International Trade and the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit.

Nathan’s legal practice has focused on the effectiveness of trade remedies. Through analysis of trade and industry data, Nathan works with industry clients to identify strengths and weaknesses in the operation of trade relief and to formulate strategies for interventions that are likely to have significant market impacts.

Nathan has worked closely with federal, state, and local government agencies to enhance 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. This experience has led to the creation and maintenance of an extensive library of resources documenting circumvention and evasion practices and strategies.

Prior to joining Picard Kentz & Rowe, Nathan began his legal career as an associate in the international trade practice group of Dewey & LeBoeuf (formerly Dewey Ballantine).
