Intellectual Property Litigation


Juan José Garcia is an international trade lawyer practicing at the intersection of international trade litigation, intellectual property theft, and regulatory compliance.


Juan leverages his experience in the legislative, executive, and judicial branches of government to develop innovative litigation strategies, regulatory compliance programs, and strategic trade policy advice. His experience includes federal district court litigation; Section 337 and Title VII antidumping and countervailing duty investigations before the U.S. International Trade Commission (ITC) and U.S. Department of Commerce (DOC); post-remedy enforcement before the ITC and U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP); as well as appeals before the U.S. Court of International Trade and U.S. Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit. He has also been involved in agency rulemaking proceedings under the Administrative Procedure Act (APA). Juan understands the spectrum of tools available in the international trade space and leverages them to find efficient solutions for clients in diverse market industries, ranging from the growth stage to the Fortune 500.


Before entering private practice, Juan was in public service with the U.S. Government Accountability Office (GAO) and GAO's Office of Inspector General where he evaluated statutory and regulatory compliance across various Congressional Committees and federal agencies, including the U.S. Department of Justice, U.S. Department of Transportation, U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development, and U.S. Copyright Office. Prior to GAO, Juan served with the White House Domestic Policy Council under the Obama Administration, where he worked on immigration policy and the President’s Task Force on New Americans, an interagency effort to develop a coordinated federal strategy to better integrate immigrants into our communities.


Juan has been recognized as a Top 100 "Most Active" Lawyer in Patexia's ITC Intelligence Report (2022 Edition), shortlisted as a Future Leader finalist in the 2022 North America Chambers Diversity & Inclusion Awards, and featured in "Your Invisible Network: How to Create, Maintain, and Leverage the Relationships That Will Transform Your Career," authored by Michael Urtuzuástegui Melcher.
