According to statistics from the World Bank, Korea is second to only China in the number of anti-dumping lawsuits filed against Korean companies (Chinese companies accounted for 28.7%; Korea 10.7%; U.S. 3.5%; and Japan 3%).
It is advisable for clients engaged in anti-dumping cases to confirm the veracity of the data presented to the U.S. International Trade Commission (ITC). The ITC have few resources to confirm the data.
We were retained, last year, for an anti-dumping case against a
Korean conglomerate. We have seen a drastic increase in the number of
clients interested in taking on Korean and Chinese companies alleged to
be dumping products into the United States. We expect the number of cases will increase after a few successful cases by U.S. and European companies against Korean and Chinese companies.
