Nossaman LLP


Customs and Export Control

Nossaman assists clients in a wide variety of industries with their international business and trade matters. We help to remove obstructions to the international movement of goods and services. Nossaman attorneys advise on all aspects of importing, and both real and deemed exporting, of goods and technology. We assist clients to obtain export or re-export licenses and special comprehensive licenses from the Department of Commerce, the Office of Foreign Assets Control, or other United States Government agencies, and in identifying license exceptions.

Nossaman attorneys represent clients on import and export matters in federal courts and before administrative and regulatory agencies, including the U.S. Customs and Border Protection, the Department of Commerce, the Bureau of Industry and Security, the Office of Foreign Assets Control, the Department of Defense, the Department of Homeland Security, and the Department of Justice.

We assist clients in establishing compliance programs and similar activities to assure compliance with Export Control and Customs Laws, including helping clients to develop training programs and to produce training films.

We have an impressive record of successfully defending clients accused of customs and export control violations (both civil and criminal), in avoiding potential customs duties and penalties, and in obtaining special licenses and exemptions for exporters.

Our import and export clients include major domestic and multi-national corporations, as well as United States and foreign individuals, in a wide range of industries, including life sciences, pharmaceutical, manufacturing, oil, beverage, and high technology.
