Wiley Rein’s Alan Price Profiled as ‘International Trade MVP’ by Law360
Washington, DC — Alan H. Price, chair of Wiley Rein’s International Trade Practice, was profiled by Law360 as a 2015 “International Trade MVP.” He was one of four attorneys named to the highly competitive list in the international trade category.
The November 24 Law360 article heralded Mr. Price’s representation of Nucor Corp., for which he filed “the biggest set of investigations filed on steel in the last 15 years: a series of anti-dumping and countervailing duty cases involving corrosion-resistant steel products, cold-rolled and hot-rolled steel.”
The profile also highlighted work that Mr. Price and the five-time Law360 “Practice Group of the Year” award-winning group undertook on behalf of the Coalition for Rare Earths for American Manufacturing which challenged the lower export quotas and high export tariffs imposed by China on several rare earths.
“The positioning that we did on raw materials [in China] — we saw that as a potential issue years before the U.S. brought the WTO case and started to write papers on that before anyone else did,” Mr. Price told Law360. “We were then able to position ourselves as the leading experts in the area so that when it was time for people to select counsel, we were the leading candidate and got the work.”
Mr. Price told Law360 that his interest in international trade was first discovered in law school. He uses that passion for international trade law to the benefit of not only clients, but entire domestic industries as well.
“Trade policy work benefits trade law users and the U.S. economy,” Mr. Price told Law360. “We get to deal with major policy issues with significant economic implications. We are at the forefront of how to change the rules of the road in order to improve and preserve U.S. competitiveness.”
The 2015 class of Law360 MVPs includes 189 attorneys from 86 firms spanning 31 practice areas. Editors reviewed more than 850 submissions in selecting the winners.
