The U.S. law firm of Baker & Hostetler LLP is pleased to announce that John W. Clayton, Jr., has joined the firm as the Director of Trade Analysis in its Washington, D.C. office. Mr. Clayton, a Certified Public Accountant, is widely recognized as the leading expert in providing cost accounting services to non-market economy industries involved in U.S. antidumping proceedings. Mr. Clayton has represented clients in more than one hundred antidumping proceedings and has achieved more victories than any other person in the antidumping field.

Over a span of more than 20 years, Mr. Clayton has assisted a wide variety of industries involved in U.S. dumping cases, including foodstuffs, chemicals, pharmaceuticals, minerals and metals, and consumer products. Mr. Clayton focuses on assisting non-market economy producers, especially in China and Vietnam, in providing the detailed production cost data that U.S. authorities demand from foreign producers subject to U.S. antidumping proceedings.

Prior to joining Baker Hostetler, Mr. Clayton served as the Chief Accountant of Grunfeld Desiderio, Lebowitz, Silverman and Klestadt LLP. He previously was employed as a cost accounting specialist with Trade Resources, a Washington, D.C., trade consulting company, and as a cost accountant with the U.S. Department of Commerce.

“The addition of John Clayton enhances Baker Hostetler’s ability to provide superior service to industries in China and Vietnam involved in U.S. antidumping proceedings,” said Elliot Feldman, head of the firm’s International Trade practice. “Before John went in-house to another law firm, he worked successfully with us. Now, John will devote his extraordinary experience, expertise and skills entirely to matters handled by Baker Hostetler.”

Baker Hostetler represents foreign and domestic companies, associations and governments from every continent in all manner of international trade, customs and immigration proceedings before U.S. and foreign regulatory agencies, courts, and international dispute resolution panels. The firm and its attorneys also enjoy close working relationships with trade lawyers in other countries throughout the world.

Attorneys in the Washington office represent clients in antidumping, countervailing duty and other investigative proceedings before the Department of Commerce and the International Trade Commission; Section 201 safeguard actions involving many different federal agencies and the White House; and Section 301 actions before the U.S. Trade Representative. They also represent clients in customs, immigration, export controls and economic sanctions matters before the Departments of Treasury, Commerce, Homeland Security, State and Defense.
