Martha Thompson Authors Article for Alabama Construction News Addressing New Tariffs on Steel and Aluminum
Martha Thompson, partner in our Birmingham office and member of the Litigation Practice, recently authored an article for Alabama Construction News. The article, “Why Is Everyone Freaking Out Over the Proposed Tariff,” discusses President Trump’s recent announcement of new tariffs on both aluminum and steel, addresses the history of tariffs in the United States, and examines the arguments from proponents and opponents of the new tariffs. Martha also highlights common questions surrounding the specifics of the new tariffs, including whether companies will be able to seek exemptions for certain foreign products, whether any countries will be excluded, and the potential legal and financial ramifications of the new measure.
