‘A victory for Chinese steel and US law’: why a lawyer thinks Chinese companies can put faith in the American legal system

July 3, 2018, South China Morning Post

Ruixue Ran is quoted in a South China Morning Post article regarding how the result of the recent U.S. steel investigation should encourage Chinese companies to use the American legal system to settle disputes. According to Ran, the case was the first of its kind against Chinese steel products and the first time Chinese companies had won a trade secrets case before the commission. “Chinese companies should maximize the use of U.S. laws and rules to protect their interests,” Ran says. “Rule of law is helping to make the vulnerable more protected. The investigation against the Chinese steel companies is an excellent example of this.” She adds, “The U.S. is a mature market economy with a sophisticated legal system. It is very important for Chinese companies to understand and use US rules when they are handling trade frictions with the U.S.”
