Lisa Wang focuses her practice on international trade law matters, including antidumping (AD) and countervailing duty (CVD) litigation and trade policy issues. She is the lead counsel for the U.S. industry in the AD and CVD proceedings of softwood lumber imports from Canada, which is one of the largest and most complex trade litigation cases brought under the U.S. AD and CVD laws. Her representation includes those proceedings before the U.S. Department of Commerce (Commerce), U.S. International Trade Commission (ITC), and dispute settlement panels established under Chapter 19 of the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) and the World Trade Organization (WTO). She was the lead counsel for the U.S. industry’s successful defense of the ITC’s material injury finding before a NAFTA Chapter 19 dispute settlement panel, which is the first time in the four-decade long history of the softwood lumber litigation that the U.S. industry has had such a conclusive victory.
Prior to joining Picard Kentz & Rowe, Ms. Wang was a Senior Attorney with the Office of the Chief Counsel for Trade Enforcement and Compliance at the U.S. Department of Commerce. During that time, she provided legal advice concerning the enforcement and administration of the U.S. antidumping and countervailing duty laws. She represented the agency during administrative hearings and drafted briefs and other submissions for cases before the U.S. Court of International Trade and the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit.
Previously, Ms. Wang served as an Assistant General Counsel in the Office of the U.S. Trade Representative. During that time, she led oral arguments before the WTO Appellate Body and Panel in the United States’ successful defense of a key provision of the U.S. countervailing duty law. She also was responsible for developing dispute and policy positions related to China’s WTO obligations and formulated U.S. positions for countries seeking to join the WTO as part of the WTO accessions process.
Ms. Wang spent three years with the U.S. Embassy in Beijing, China as the Senior Import Administration Officer, where she represented the United States in Chinese trade remedy proceedings. For her work on these proceedings, Ms. Wang was awarded Commerce’s Bronze Medal Award for Distinguished Performance. She also led outreach events with U.S. companies and other stakeholders on China’s trade policy climate and provided counsel on issues related to doing business in China.
Ms. Wang began her career as an associate at Dewey & LeBoeuf (formerly Dewey Ballantine) after graduating from the Georgetown University Law Center.
