We have experience assisting companies in preparing and prosecuting FTZ applications and in developing the related inventory control and customs documentation. We also have the experience necessary to overcome opposition to complex applications.
Our FTZ team includes a former chairman of the U.S. Foreign Trade Zone Board, a former government attorney from the agency that administers the Foreign Trade Zone program, and a team of lawyers and advocates with FTZ experience. We understand the internal processes for reviewing applications and making recommendations; our broad range of international trade experience combined with an understanding of decision-makers- criteria is a valuable resource for clients.
