    Frost Brown Todd Charleston Partner-in-Charge Carte Goodwin Reappointed to US-China Economic and Security Review Commission

Frost Brown Todd (FBT) Charleston Partner-in-Charge Carte Goodwin has been reappointed by U.S. Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer to the U.S.-China Economic and Security Review Commission. The commission monitors, investigates, and submits to Congress an annual report on the national security implications of the bilateral trade and economic relationship between the United States and the People’s Republic of China.

During Goodwin’s tenure with the commission, he has actively participated in providing Congress recommendations for policy changes related to China’s strategic competition with the United States. In 2023, Goodwin co-chaired a committee hearing titled “Rule by Law: China’s Increasingly Global Legal Reach,” which explored the Chinese Communist Party’s ambition to promote its view of international law, as well as challenges faced by U.S. courts in interpreting Chinese law and assessing the Chinese legal system.

At FBT, Goodwin is part of the firm’s Business Litigation Practice Group. His practice includes litigation and appellate advocacy, as well as advising clients on government relations, intellectual property matters and commercial transactions. After serving in the U.S. Senate, Goodwin is uniquely positioned to advise clients who want to navigate the administrative, regulatory, and legislative processes in West Virginia, where he practices.

Goodwin’s latest two-year term on the U.S.-China Economic and Security Review Commission, his seventh consecutive, will expire on Dec. 31, 2025.
