Peter Jarosz has over 20 years’ international trade law experience. His practice focuses on anti-dumping, countervailing (anti-subsidy) and safeguards. 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 Canada-United States-Mexico Agreement (CUSMA) issues.

An area of particular interest for Peter is challenging and defending federal government procurement actions. His work in this space is enhanced by his experience as legal counsel to the Canadian International Trade Tribunal, the independent quasi-judicial body that administers and adjudicates international and Canadian rules that govern trade and federal government procurement.
