Chinese simple: 简体中文

Will Sjoberg advocates on behalf of clients in trade remedy proceedings before the U.S. Department of Commerce (DOC), the U.S. International Trade Commission, and the Office of the U.S. Trade Representative.

Will also represents clients on a variety of issues before U.S. Customs and Border Protection. When any of the foregoing administrative proceedings generate an issue for his client, he litigates the issue before the U.S. Court of International Trade and, if necessary, the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit. Will also provides counsel in trade remedy proceedings brought by foreign governments. He works closely with clients to understand their industry and, more importantly, their specific company and its goals. Whether the task involves analyzing a company’s financial and accounting records to create a strategy as to the best way to present an issue to the administering authority or advising a company as to the merits of an argument, he listens first.

Having started his career as an Import Compliance Specialist at the DOC’s Office of Enforcement and Compliance (formerly Import Administration), Will is well-versed in the minutiae of trade proceedings and, combined with his 25 years of experience as a member of the international trade bar, he is able to effectively use that information to benefit his clients.
