Mr. Wisla has practiced international trade law for over 25 years, representing foreign governments, foreign manufacturers and U.S. importers before U.S. governmental agencies, U.S. federal courts and international organizations. Mr. Wisla's practice focuses on antidumping and countervailing duty investigations before the U.S. Department of Commerce and the U.S. International Trade Commission. He has represented producers from Latin America, Europe and Asia and their U.S. importers encompassing industries diverse as agricultural products, chemicals, textiles, metallurgical and industrial products, consumer goods and high technology products. 

Mr. Wisla has extensive experience in non-market economy cases from China and Vietnam. He has handled scores of investigations, administrative reviews and anticircumvention inquiries spanning from the very first investigation of a Chinese product under the U.S. antidumping law, and is proficient in all aspects of non-market economy practice. His background in applied economics has proven helpful in jury material investigations conducted before the U.S. International Trade Commission in interpreting collected trade and financial data and formulating compelling arguments presented to the agency. Mr. Wisla also litigates appeals from antidumping and countervailing duty proceedings before U.S. Federal Courts or before Bi-National Panels under the North American Free Trade Agreement.

Mr. Wisla also represents U.S. importers in matters arising before Customs and Border Protection including issues relating to classification, valuation, marking, penalties and mitigation, and import compliance. Working closely with Kutak Rock's intellectual property practice, Mr. Wisla defends clients against allegations of patent, trademark and copyright infringement in Section 337 investigations before the U.S. International Trade Commission.
