Additional Practice Areas and Training

Customhouse Brokers Training

We take particular pride in our representation of the Customhouse Broker who is the critical linchpin in the facilitation of international trade.  Customhouse Brokers are licensed to conduct “Customs Business” on behalf of others, but the relationship between the importer and the federal agencies that regulate international trade is greatly enhanced by the positive association with a strong Customhouse Broker. 

Freight Forwarders, NVOCCs, Express Consignment Operators, and Other International Trade Participants

The service providers that physically move goods across national boundaries face not only the difficult task of meeting the regulatory requirements of various nations, but also the business challenges of doing so in an efficient, risk adverse, and profitable manner.  We work with every type of service provider to minimize risk of non-compliance and maximize profitable business practices. 

Other Market Participants Involved with International Trade 

The impact of international trade affects businesses far beyond the actual importers and exporters of merchandise.  The U.S. end users, the foreign suppliers, intermediate consignees, and processors all present unique risks and planning opportunities.  As with other legal issues, advance attention to compliance challenges minimizes the risk of unexpected and unwelcomed predicaments with governmental entities in the U.S. and abroad. 

Supply Chain Security, C-TPAT, AEO, and Trusted Trader Programs

International trade and cargo security are inseparable.  We help clients navigate the changing landscape of national and international cargo security.
