Peter Jarosz has over 20 years’ international trade law experience. His practice focuses on anti-dumping, countervailing (anti-subsidy) and safeguards, as well as federal government procurement. He assists clients on matters relating to import/export compliance, including export controls, defence production and controlled goods, customs duties (tariff classification, value for duty and rules of origin), and CUSMA issues.
His work in this field is enhanced by his experience as legal counsel to the CITT, the independent quasi-judicial body that administers and adjudicates international and Canadian rules that govern trade and federal government procurement. He has been counsel for a party or for the CITT on over 100 trade law and procurement proceedings from 1998 to present, including:
Welded pipe (first-ever WTO dispute involving the CITT)
Aluminium extrusions, Bicycles (counsel for Canadian industry)
Fasteners (counsel for importers and foreign governments)
