Two Nominated to Serve on International Trade Commission
President Trump announced Sept. 28 his intention to nominate Dennis Devaney and Randolph Stayin as commissioners of the International Trade Commission.
Devaney is currently practice team leader and counsel at a law firm, where he works on international trade matters as well as labor and employment issues. He served as an ITC commissioner previously and his new term would expire in June 2023. He has also served on the National Labor Relations Board.
Stayin’s 40-plus years practicing law have focused on international trade policy and regulation. According to a White House notice, he has “an exceptional record of successes” litigating before U.S. regulatory agencies and courts on issues such as trade remedies (including antidumping and countervailing duties, intellectual property infringement, unfair trade practices, and safeguards), the Generalized System of Preferences, export regulation, trade sanctions, anti-boycott issues, and customs enforcement. Earlier in his career he served as chief of staff to Sen. Robert Taft, Jr., and was his trade advisor in negotiating the passage of the Trade Act of 1974. Stayin’s term would expire in June 2026.
