Asia is both a vastly important source of goods and components imported into the U.S. and other countries and a significant market for exports. But the rules governing this vital trade are complex and likely to become even more so in today’s evolving global environment.

ST&R has nearly a half-century of experience helping companies profitably engage in trade with Asian countries by taking advantage of emerging opportunities while avoiding common pitfalls. For those importing from the region we provide support for customs audits, inquiries, and examinations; post-import reviews of classification, valuation, and penalty matters; forced labor concerns; admissibility issues; antidumping and countervailing duty investigations; and voluntary disclosures and administrative appeals against customs findings. On the export side we focus on ensuring compliance with applicable export controls and economic sanctions.

Why Use ST&R's Asia-Pacific Support for Global Trade Issues

Cost savings: Having professionals, including former U.S. Customs and Border Protection personnel, in both Asia and the U.S. allows us to more quickly and effectively help clients take advantage of ways to lower their costs, including the first sale rule, free trade agreements and preferential tariff programs, special tax regimes, bonded/free trade zones, and e-commerce. We’re also ideally positioned to help resolve problems related to country of origin, forced labor, AD/CV duties, and other issues before they result in untenable costs and delays.

Efficiency: Our on-the-ground presence allows us to quickly resolve issues and help trade flow faster.

Compliance: Our team can precisely identify the information and tools you need to comply with applicable rules and avoid potential problems as well as the remedial actions you can take to help minimize negative consequences when violations are found.
