Steel Exporters' Association is Planning To Take Legal Support

Steel Exporters' Association (ÇİB hereafter) is a professional establishment that represents most of the steel exporters of Turkey. The Association is assisting its members to increase national exports at the Steel sector and organizing, supervising export activities of member firms and taking necessary precautions on these activities. The Association negotiates with official authorities for solving problems at every level of export process, ensuring the decisions to be taken and realising organisations for that goal.

As you may recall, on 28 March 2017 “Anti-Dumping and Countervailing Duty Case has been filed on “Wire Rod” originating in or exported from Turkey and/or the conditions of the import thereof caused or are likely to cause serious injury to the domestic industry.

Thus, ÇİB is planning to take legal support from a law firm for anti-dumping and countervailing duties investigations and probable cases finalize this investigations process in a positive way in the injury determination stage to defend Turkey.

In conclusion, we would like to receive “a proposal” about the defence of Turkey in this anti-dumping and countervailing duties investigations and probable cases from your company that should be considered as experienced in antidumping and countervailing duties investigations and preferably has a partner in USA.

The offer should set out a general strategy, information about which cases defended previously and the associated budget. The associated budget should be on “per hour& flat- fee” bases, and total expected budget. Please make sure that your proposal covers injury determination stage fees for ÇİB and hearings if necessary.

Because of our limited time, the deadline for the proposal is 7th April 2017 at 03.00 pm local time in Turkey.

For your attention: Advocacy service fee will be paid as described below, and in case of ending without any prevention %60 of the total fee will be paid as success fee.

Instalment: After preliminary determination (%10)

Instalment: After completion of the second written submission to the Authority (%10)

Instalment: After the Hearing process (%10)

Instalment: After the publication of the final determination (%10)

If,  before  the  completion   of  the  above  stages  the  case  is  terminated   for  any  reason whatsoever without  the imposition of any tax, or in case of Turkey's exemption from the investigation due to low import shares in the specific country, the remaining  amount  of the agreed total fee shall not be paid by the Association.
