Mr. Malashevich works closely on an ongoing basis with clients in various manufacturing industries, including metals, minerals, agricultural, industrial chemicals, telecommunications and electronics product areas.

He also has testified on numerous occasions, and in various legal venues, regarding issues of damages allegedly resulting from breaches of contract and trade-distorting measures, in the United States and other jurisdictions. He is well acquainted with the many nuances that shape economic arguments in Section 337 cases before the U.S. International Trade Commission.
Since 1996, he has been annually reappointed to the U.S. Roster of Experts for service on dispute settlement panels formed under the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA). He has written and spoken widely regarding the economics of applying antidumping/countervailing duty and other trade law in the United States, the EU, Russia, China, Mexico, South Africa, India and other jurisdictions.

By invitation, for five years he served as an Associate Member of the “Dispute Settlement in Trade: Training in Law and Economics,” also called “Dissettle.” Dissettle is an organization run by five outstanding European universities under a grant from the European Commission. The objective is to train a new cohort of economic and legal experts to be prepared and able to work together in formulating trade policy and settling international trade and investment disputes. Its goal is to cross the current divide between legal and economic expertise. Mr. Malashevich has been regularly called upon to make presentations and otherwise participate in Dissettle programs.
