Maarten van de Geijn
Maarten van de Geijn joined Economic Consulting Services in 1988 and became a Vice President in 1994. Mr. van de Geijn specializes in the area of U.S. unfair trade proceedings, including antidumping and countervailing duty investigations and reviews.
Mr. van de Geijn has assisted numerous foreign clients in all stages of U.S. antidumping proceedings, including the preparation of comprehensive sales and cost data to be submitted to the U.S. Department of Commerce, and the development of optimum allocation methodologies for the response. In addition, he has assisted a number of international clients in developing optimum response strategies that minimize the financial liabilities to the company as a result of the antidumping orders, while maximizing continued access to the U.S. market.
Mr. van de Geijn also has participated in unfair trade proceedings on behalf of U.S. producers. In these cases, he provided critical analyses and testimony regarding sales and cost data provided by respondents to the Department of Commerce, and supplied alternative methodologies to ensure a maximum impact on the unfairly traded imports.
Mr. van de Geijn also has provided economic analysis regarding the impact of unfairly traded imports on the condition of the U.S. industry before the International Trade Commission.
Mr. van de Geijn has developed company-specific sales monitoring programs to assist foreign producers in taking preventive action when faced with current or potential antidumping proceedings. Using these programs, key factors driving the antidumping duty liability are identified. Together with the client, measures to control these key factors are developed and implemented, resulting in significant financial savings to the client, while preserving access to the U.S. market. In addition, sales activities can be monitored on an ongoing basis to provide up-to-date information on the firm’s potential liabilities associated with the antidumping proceedings.
In addition to his involvement in unfair trade proceedings, Mr. van de Geijn has participated in the preparation of expert witness reports relating to intercorporate transfer prices submitted as part of tax litigation proceedings before the U.S. tax courts. Mr. van de Geijn has also been involved in a number of economic studies relating to the impact of capital investments in the regional transportation sector.
Mr. van de Geijn received his B.A. in International Relations from the University of Maryland, where he also completed the course work for an M.A. in economics. Mr. van de Geijn is fluent in French, German, Spanish and Dutch.
