May 5, 2022

AAEI is recognizing your fellow AAEI members— Trade Champions— whose careers in international trade have had significant impact on the development of trade policy and practice. This month, AAEI honors Kathleen Murphy of Faegre Drinker Biddle & Reath LLP.

Kathi is a longtime AAEI member and Association leader. She’s a former member of AAEI’s Board of Governors and a current member of AAEI’s Industry Leadership Council (ILC).

Kathi is a partner at Faegre Drinker and provides clients with advice on regulatory, policy and compliance matters involving international trade. Specifically, Kathi advises clients on mitigation strategies, including exclusion opportunities under Sections 232 and 301 investigations, tariff classification and tariff engineering review, country of origin determination, valuation scenarios, and evaluation of alternative supply chain opportunities involving free trade agreements, duty preference programs and customs options for neutralizing or reducing tariff exposure.

AAEI members know Kathi as a steward of the Association, having guided the organization through financial challenges. Kathi continues to support AAEI through her work on the ILC. With gratitude, AAEI is pleased to confer another career achievement to Kathi as an AAEI Trade Champion.
