Mr. McCullough is a partner in the International Trade group. He focuses his practice on international trade law and policy.

Mr. McCullough advises governments and companies, both foreign and domestic, on an array of trade matters affecting cross-border trade in goods and services.  He has particular expertise in U.S. trade remedy actions addressing dumping, subsidization and industry adjustment (safeguards), as well as the international agreements governing those actions.  He has applied that expertise in representing the governments of Argentina, Brazil, Canada, China, Korea, Japan, Oman, and Vietnam, whether  in matters before U.S. agencies or disputes before the World Trade Organization.  He also has experience with “Buy American” government procurement preferences, customs matters, issues related to export controls, anti-boycott regulations and the U.S. sanctions regime.

Mr. McCullough represents clients from across the globe. His representation covers a broad array of economic interests in the manufacturing and agriculture sectors. He is often consulted on matters involving the domestic and global steel industries.  His recent major matters include  representation of the Government of Canada in a U.S. countervailing duty case brought against Canadian aircraft, representation of the Government of New Brunswick in a countervailing duty case brought against Canadian softwood lumber, representation of the Government of Newfoundland and Labrador in a countervailing case brought against uncoated groundwood paper, and finally representation of the entire Spanish table olive industry in both injury and AD/CVD proceedings involving imports of ripe olives.  

Mr. McCullough was also part of the litigation team that won a ruling from the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit invalidating the use of the U.S. countervailing duty law against China while China is treated as a non-market economy for antidumping law purposes. 

In recognition of his expertise, Legal 500 USA has identified Mr. McCullough as a “Next Generation Lawyer” for international trade. He has also been identified by Chambers USA as a recognized practitioner for his experience in trade remedies and trade policy.
