WASHINGTON, DC, March 16, 2017 -- Arnold & Porter Kaye Scholer LLP announced today that Lynn Fischer Fox, former Deputy Assistant Secretary for Policy and Negotiations in the International Trade Administration at the US Department of Commerce, has joined the firm's International Trade practice as counsel, resident in Washington, DC.

Ms. Fischer Fox spent nearly five years in the International Trade Administration at the US Department of Commerce. During her tenure, she coordinated the formulation and implementation of policies governing the administration of antidumping and countervailing duty laws in the US and led settlement negotiations for multiple high-profile trade remedy disputes. Ms. Fischer Fox also oversaw the Department's efforts to develop trade rules and disciplines that create a level global playing field for US enterprises. She led a team monitoring foreign government compliance with bilateral and multilateral agreements, and advocated on behalf of US industries with foreign governments, to ensure that companies received the benefits of international trade and investment agreements. She also coordinated efforts on trade remedy negotiations in the World Trade Organization and in bilateral and multilateral agreements.

Lawrence Schneider, head of the firm's International Trade practice, commented: "Lynn has a deep understanding of the ins and outs of international trade negotiations and trade compliance proceedings. In her role at the US Department of Commerce, she also gained first-hand experience navigating the rules governing an array of trade-related issues including anti-corruption, competition, state-owned enterprises, subsidies, antidumping, labor, environment, and trade-related investment measures. Her background will be of immediate and significant benefit to our clients."

Earlier in her career, Ms. Fischer Fox spent more than a decade in private practice litigating trade remedy issues before US agencies and courts, as well as advising clients on a variety of other international trade matters. She also worked as an Energy & Climate Policy Officer at the Commission for Environmental Cooperation and as a Trade and Environment Specialist with the Natural Resources Defense Council.
