Trade Regulation

Zelle attorneys have extensive experience in matters before numerous domestic and international regulatory agencies, including the Department of Justice, the Food and Drug Administration, the Federal Trade Commission, the International Trade Commission, the Interstate Commerce Commission, the National Association of Securities Dealers, the Securities Exchange Commission and China's Ministry of Foreign Trade and Economic Cooperation.

Domestic Trade Regulation

Regulatory investigations can pose a serious risk to a corporation's business.  Zelle has represented insurers,  registered representatives, financial planners, and investment advisors who are being investigated by regulatory agencies, including the SEC, Department of Labor, State Attorney General, California Department of Corporations, the NASD, and the Certified Financial Planner Board of Standards.  Our experience also includes preparation of filings to comply with the pre-merger notification rules under the Hart-Scott-Rodino Antitrust Improvements Act, preparation and filing of comments on the promulgation of regulations by state and federal agencies, and defending clients in administrative actions by federal commissions.

International Trade Regulation

Zelle attorneys, in conjunction with their affiliated offices in the People's Republic of China, counsel Chinese clients in international trade matters. These matters include providing advice to China's Ministry of Foreign Trade and Economic Cooperation on issues pertaining to China's accession to the World Trade Organization. Representative cases are described below.

Zelle attorneys have routinely provided advice to clients and published comments on Chinese legal developments as a part of their international practice. For example, an article authored by Daniel S. Mason and Athena Jiangxiao Hou that was published in the prominent Asian law journal, Asian Law & Practice, provides an extensive analysis of China's draft Anti-Monopoly Law in light of the U.S. and European experiences in constructing and implementing antitrust laws.
