Barnes/Richardson Partner to Discuss Successful Resolution of ADD/CVD Investigations and other Trade Issues at the National Fastener Distributors Association Spring Meeting

March 10, 2010

On April 6, 2010, Matt McGrath will discuss the successful resolution of antidumping and countervailing duty investigations of steel fasteners from China and Taiwan at the National Fastener Distributor Association’s annual conference in San Antonio, Texas. BRC represented the importers of such fasteners challenging the petition filed by Nucor Fasteners.  The investigations were terminated in the preliminary injury determination by the US International Trade Commission, by a vote of 6-0. 

Following his presentation, Mr. McGrath will moderate a panel discussion on the potential implications of these issues on distributors. For more information on the panel and to register for the conference, please visit
