Travelers – Monetary Seizures/Failure to Declare

When U.S. Customs seizes money or property from International Travelers. We petition for relief, to eliminate or substantially reduce Customs penalties for the failure to declare cash, checks or other monetary instruments or dutiable items, and we retrieve seized money and property.

Audits

We protect Importers, Exporters, and Brokers targeted for audit, by interfacing with U.S. Customs and other federal agencies using strategies to avoid penalties and reduce any duty deficiency claims. We engage directly with the auditors to eliminate the need for an audit or to ensure a smooth and expedited audit process if it occurs.

Penalties for Material Omissions or False Statements – and Liquidated Damages Claims

We examine government penalty and liquidated damage notices and challenge and mitigate such claims.

Classification, Valuation and Country of Origin

We establish classification, valuation, country of origin and marking protocols, using validated legal principals to implement cost effective procedures to achieve outcomes most favorable to our clients and contest governmental challenges.

Reasonable Care

We provide guidance and assistance to our clients to enable them to demonstrate “Reasonable Care,” the legal standard by which they will be judged in their import transactions to avoid cargo delays, seizures, penalties, and audits.

Antidumping, Countervailing & Other U.S. Retaliatory Duties
