Despite the current economy, the number of Section 337 investigations instituted by the International Trade Commission continues at a near record rate. Section 337 provides powerful, quick and effective remedies to prevent the unfair importation of articles into the United States. This three-part series explores effective strategies for each phase of litigating a Section 337 case - from the initial decision to file a complaint with the ITC, to litigation and trial before the Administrative Law Judge, to Commission review, enforcement of remedies, appellate review and beyond.

In the third and final part of this series, we will focus on the final phase of a Section 337 investigation - what occurs in the critical period after the Commission issues its final decision. Mayer Brown partners Gary Hnath, Ian Feinberg and Reg Goeke will be joined by Tim Keeler, former Chief of Staff at the US Trade Representative (USTR), to discuss:

  • What occurs behind the scenes at USTR during the Presidential review phase
  • Some of the unique aspects of appealing a Section 337 decision
  • Maximizing the value of an ITC order by working with Customs and using enforcement proceedings
  • Options available for respondents faced with an unfavorable ITC ruling
