U.S. Customs

In the field of global commerce, issues of international trade and border control have lately become politically charged, subject to constant and rapid change. Now more than ever our clients need steady, reliable counsel to guide them through the logistics of conducting international business in the industries of food, drugs, medical devices, cosmetics and dietary supplements.

The U.S. Customs Law group at Amin Talati Upadhye advises clients on designing effective logistics programs which facilitate international manufacturing and distribution, while remaining in compliance with the numerous and shifting regulations and laws which govern this landscape. Our attorneys partner with health and wellness-focused companies to develop cost effective strategies for cross border business practices which are designed to anticipate and avoid challenges. However, when these challenges do arise, we are ready to defend, negotiate and resolve.

Led by partner Abhishek Gurnani, our team is experienced in legal services pertaining to U.S. Customs such as audits and entry procedures, classifications of tariffs, marking and labeling, protests and prior disclosures. We also assist with detentions, forfeitures, seizures and other enforcement and penalty actions. Our value lies in our frequent communications with the regulatory agencies involved, the large number of matters we handle in this capacity, and our impressive record of results.
