Success in the global marketplace is critical to most companies. However, achieving this success and complying with the law can be difficult.
At Middleton & Shrull, we provide in-depth expertise to best resolve our clients' concerns regarding various import and export issues.
Located in the Greater Boston area, we guide our clients through the myriad of government statutes and regulations which can affect their international transactions. However, unlike communications with trade consultants or customs brokers, client communications with our attorneys are protected by the attorney-client privilege.
We also encourage our clients to take advantage of opportunities provided by recent international trade agreements, such as the WTO and NAFTA. We pride ourselves on keeping our clients current by providing information which affects their business in a timely fashion.
We believe that it is in our clients' best interest to be proactive in international trade issues. We work in partnership with our clients' legal, financial, purchasing, and logistics professionals to ensure the client is taking full atvantage of any duty-saving opportunities which may be available. At the same time, we help to ensure full compliance with all of the applicable legal and procedural requirements.
We work proactively to:
- develop practical, internal compliance programs;
- train internal staff; and
- conduct periodic in-house compliance reviews to limit the clients' duty assessment while avoiding any potential legal liability.
