The Firm
















The firm appears on behalf of its clients before U.S. Customs officials throughout the United States and at Customs Headquarters in Washington, D.C. The firm's founding partners are former U.S. Customs officials, who give the firm a special perspective and expertise when rendering advice and counsel in connection with customs matters. The partners' experience enables the firm to handle all matters before the U.S. Customs Service including Binding Ruling Requests, responding to Requests for Information (CF 28), preparing petitions for remission and cancellation of fines, penalties and the release of seized goods, making Prior Disclosures, advising clients during an audit, conducting Compliance Assessments, and designing Compliance Programs.


Because the international movement of goods involves many other federal regulatory requirements, the firm regularly handles matters arising under the laws and regulations enforced by other agencies such as the Federal Trade Commission, the Food & Drug Administration, the Consumer Products Safety Commission, the United States Department of Agriculture, the United States Fish & Wildlife Service, the International Trade Administration, the Bureau of Export Administration, and others.


The firm also counsels and represents U.S. and international clients regarding a variety of commercial transactions in the United States and abroad, including matters pertaining to agency and distribution agreements, exports, export licensing and governmental compliance, technology transfer and intellectual property protection, corporate internal compliance policies, structuring of relationships, and joint ventures. Lawyers with the firm possess foreign language capabilities and/or have corresponding relationships with foreign law firms and other resources.


In addition to its federal regulatory practice, the firm has represented clients before the U.S. Court of International Trade, the Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit, as well as other federal courts. The firm handles both domestic and international litigation related to commercial transactions.
