Mr. Stewart is the Managing Partner of Stewart and Stewart, having joined his father and founder, Eugene L. Stewart, upon graduation from law school in 1979. Mr. Stewart’s practice focuses on international trade matters, notably:

  • trade remedies (including antidumping, countervailing duty, safeguard and China-specific safeguard actions) in the U.S. and (with local counsel) abroad;
  • protection of trading rights within bilateral, plurilateral and multilateral fora (e.g., NAFTA, US-Korea, World Trade Organization (“WTO”) dispute settlement);
  • customs law (classification, valuation, compliance programs);
  • litigation (whether domestic (at the U.S. Court of International Trade, U,S. Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit, U.S. Supreme Court; other federal courts) and dispute settlement proceedings for trade agreements (WTO, NAFTA, other FTAs);
  • negotiations (WTO, FTAs (e.g., Trans Pacific Partnership, Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership (US-EU), International Services Agreement), climate change) including on areas such as agriculture, manufactured goods, service sectors, government procurement, standards (technical barriers to trade), sanitary and phytosanitary rules, investment measures, trade remedies, customs valuation, licensing, intellectual property, state owned enterprises and state trading enterprises and including accession to the WTO;
  • trade policy (legislation, regulations, practice before various government agencies (U.S. Department of Commerce, U.S. Trade Representative, U.S. International Trade Commission, U.S. Customs and Border Protection, U.S. Department of Agriculture, U.S. Department of the Treasury)
  • studies on conditions in major trading partners – subsidy reports, intellectual property enforcement, compliance with WTO accession protocols (e.g., countries who have joined since 1995 (such as the People’s Republic of China, the Russia Federation, Ukraine, Taiwan).

He brings to his clients a wealth of experience, having been involved in hundreds of trade remedy cases and having helped shape trade policy in both the United States and abroad.

Mr. Stewart assists clients with international trade matters through the pursuit of trade remedies before administrative agencies, courts, and dispute settlement bodies of international organizations. Additionally, he pursues clients’ interests through the development of legislative options on trade-related issues and the evaluation of regulations and practices of countries where clients are active. Mr. Stewart also provides clients with insight on the opportunities and challenges presented by trade agreements and promotes clients’ interests during negotiations.

More broadly, Mr. Stewart practices administrative law at the federal level and judicial review of administrative determinations, including appellate advocacy in non-trade areas.
