Maritime Practice Areas:
Customs and Trade:
We have substantial experience with the United States Customs Service. We have assisted clients in opposing seizures of vessels and cargoes and have acted in response to many penalty actions for alleged failure to comply with customs, cabotage, immigration, gambling and similar regulations. We have defended large shipping lines and individual owners in cases involving stowaways and contraband, and work closely with clients to develop policies and procedures to eliminate such problems from their operations.
