Our attorneys have assisted clients in establishing corporate compliance programs for U.S. and international trade regulations. We counsel companies on navigating the new NAFTA, namely the United States, Mexico and Canada Agreement (U.S.M.C.A.), compliance and other logistics issues that arise in commercial transactions.
We have extensive knowledge and experience in U.S. licensing procedures for international exports, product marking requirements for importation, and U.S. Customs and Border Protection (U.S.C.B.P.) compliance. We assist clients in preparing export licenses, obtaining release of goods held in impound by U.S.C.B.P., preparing and presenting product classification requests before the U.S. Department of Commerce Bureau of Industry and Security, and assisting clients with U.S.M.C.A. and International Trade Commission and Customs audits. Ed Patton, Mansour Gavin’s primary international trade attorney, has extensive practice before U.S. Customs, the Bureau of Industry and Security, NAFTA, and other U.S. governmental agencies that control and regulate international trade.
