Dr. Qian’s practice area focuses on international trade, intellectual property and dispute resolution. She also advises clients on export control and foreign investment.
In the field of international trade and WTO disputes, Dr. QIAN has represented the Government of China, exporting producers and Chambers of Commerce in a number of landmark trade investigations, such as the EU’s first anti-subsidy proceeding against China (Coated Fine Paper), China’s first WTO dispute against EU (DS397) and US first 337 investigation against steel products from China (investigation No. 337-Ta-1002).
In the EU Fasteners dispute (DS397), Dr. Qian acted as the legal counsel to MOFCOM, and the historic issue of “individual treatment” was settled in that case. As the result, EU amended the original Article 9.5 of its Basic Anti-Dumping Regulation on 3 September 2012, and the EU anti-dumping measures against fasteners from China was withdrawn on 27 February 2016.
Likewise, in the US 337 investigation against carton and alloy steel products from China (investigation No. 337-Ta-1002), Dr. Qian represented a major Chinese steel enterprise as respondent and won all the claims in that case.
