Customs

Cassidy Levy Kent advises North American and foreign producers on all aspects of U.S. and Canadian customs matters, including valuation, tariff preference, classification, country of origin, marking and labeling, qualification for NAFTA or other free trade programs, import bonding, and foreign trade zone issues. We also advise clients seeking to develop customs compliance programs.

Our attorneys have practiced before U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) and Canada Border Services Agency (CBSA) for decades, and we have experience successfully managing a wide range of enforcement proceedings — from CBP and CSBA disclosures to customs fraud investigations.

We also assist clients with all forms of protests and appeals, including requests for reliquidation, supplemental information letters (SILs), requests for further review at CBP Headquarters, and appeals before the U.S. Court of International Trade in the United States and the CBSA, the Canadian International Trade Tribunal and the Federal Court in Canada.
