International Trade and Tariffs: Understanding the Shifting Landscape and Avoiding Duties

Tuesday, October 30, 2018 12:00 PM to 1:00 PM
Boston Bar Association - 16 Beacon Street, Boston, MA


Description:

Whether you call it a trade war or trade dispute, the United States has currently committed itself to aggressively trying to alter the form of its trading relationships with China and other leading trading partners. This poses significant risks to U.S. companies engaged in international trade, as a substantial share of imported merchandise is affected by duty increases of up to 25% of the value of the merchandise. In fact, by mid-September, 50% of merchandise imported from China is slated to be subject to such increased duties.

Join Matthew Bock, an experienced trade lawyer from Middleton & Shrull, to get a comprehensive view of the current state of international trade relations in the United States, along with a detailed explanation of the various regulatory and logistical options available to U.S. importers to mitigate the impact of current and foreseeable tariffs, including the filing of product-specific exclusion requests for merchandise subject to the Section 301 tariffs on Chinese-origin goods.
