Micah Myers


Micah focuses on international trade matters and cross-border disputes. Deeply involved in many of the most high-profile and cutting-edge recent developments in international trade and international law, Micah’s experience spans major trade negotiations, World Trade Organization (WTO) dispute settlement proceedings, appellate and Supreme Court matters, and ESG-related issues such as labor-rights enforcement and human rights.

Before joining the firm in 2022, Micah spent over a decade with the Office of the U.S. Trade Representative (USTR). At USTR, Micah participated extensively in the negotiation of, among other things, the U.S.-China Phase One Agreement, the Trans-Pacific Partnership, and several trade and investment framework agreements. He also served as co-lead counsel for the United States in several WTO dispute settlement proceedings, presenting briefing and oral argument to WTO dispute settlement panels and the WTO Appellate Body, and winning every matter litigated to an adopted decision. In addition, Micah developed and led the United States-Mexico-Canada Agreement (USMCA) labor enforcement team in the USTR General Counsel’s Office, and he served as supervisory counsel in the first three enforcement matters brought under the USMCA’s novel Rapid Response Labor Mechanism, all of which resulted in successful outcomes for the United States.

Prior to his government service, Micah was a litigator with an AmLaw 100 firm, where he focused on appellate and Supreme Court matters. His domestic litigation experience includes oral arguments in U.S. courts of appeals (once en banc) and spans an array of subjects, including customs law, securities law, the First Amendment, voting rights, criminal law, and takings.

Earlier in his career, Micah served as associate legal officer to the president of the International Criminal Tribunal for the former Yugoslavia in the Hague, Netherlands. Micah has also been a visiting fellow at Stanford Law School and a law clerk to the Hon. David S. Tatel of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit.
