Doris Lin is a partner of Lee and Li and the head of the firm’s International Trade Practice Group. Over the past 20 years, Doris has focused her practice on international trade law, cross-border mergers and acquisitions, real estate transactions, labor law and securities law.
Doris advises Taiwan and international clients on a variety of international trade remedy issues which include antidumping and countervailing duties and safeguard actions imposed/taken by various countries such as Taiwan, the U.S., the European Union, Australia, Canada, Brazil, Turkey, Malaysia, Thailand, India, Vietnam, the People’s Republic of China, etc. She counsels clients on customs laws, country of origin rules, export control and sanction laws as well as trade policy matters and WTO (World Trade Organization) disputes. The clients that she represents cover, among others, companies from the industries of steel, chemical, energy, machine and textile.
In trade remedy cases, Doris has achieved a number of significant victories on behalf of her clients. For example, many of her clients involved in antidumping investigations received zero or the lowest duty rates among the other exporters subject to the investigations. She obtained for many of her clients the investigation authorities’ determinations of terminating the investigations without imposing any trade remedy duty because of the finding of no material injury caused by the imports to the domestic industry of like products.
Doris represented her clients in disputes with the Customs Administration of Taiwan on the adequate classifications of the tariff codes pertaining to the goods imported into or exported from Taiwan under the Taiwan and the WCO (World Customs Organization) HS rules. Doris also provided advice relating to the rules of country of origin and the export control/sanction laws in Taiwan
