Steel Exporters' Association is Planning to Take Legal Support - USA

Steel Exporters' Association (ÇİB hereafter) is a professional establishment that represents most of the steel exporters of Turkey. The Association is assisting its members to increase national exports at the Steel industry and organizing, supervising export activities of member firms and taking necessary precautions on these activities. The Association negotiates with official authorities for solving problems at every level of export process, ensuring the decisions to be taken and realising organisations for that goal.

As you may recall, “a Sunset Review” has been initiated by USA on “Light walled rectangular pipe” originating in or exported from Turkey and/or the conditions of the import thereof caused or are likely to cause serious injury to the domestic industry.

Thus, ÇİB is planning to take legal support from a law firm for the injury determination stage to defend Turkey.

In conclusion, we would like to receive “a proposal” about the defence of Turkey in this investigation and probable cases from your company that should be considered as experienced in anti-dumping investigations and preferably has a partner in USA.

The offer should set out a general strategy, information about which cases defended previously and the associated budget. The associated budget should be on “per hour& flat- fee” bases, and total expected budget. Please make sure that your proposal covers injury determination stage fees for ÇİB and hearings if necessary.

Because of our limited time, the deadline for the proposal is 7th May 2019.
