Iain MacVay is a partner in King & Spalding’s International Trade Practice. He counsels clients on EU and international trade and investment law, including WTO disputes and negotiation of trade agreements. Brexit and its impact on UK and EU companies and their supply chains is now a significant part of Iain's practice. Iain also advises on EU law, including compliance with EU rules on export controls, sanctions, customs, anti-dumping and anti-subsidy actions. Iain represents clients before the EU institutions, especially the Commission, and Member State authorities as well as the WTO and other international institutions.
The European Commission has proposed two sets of amendments to the basic anti-dumping and anti-subsidy Regulations, 2016/1036 and 2016/1037. The proposals are designed for different purposes but both will, if passed into law, result in significant changes to the operation of trade remedies in the EU.
