The Court of International Trade and the Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit are highly specialized federal courts that oversee all matters involving U.S. customs and trade laws. This includes classification, tariff engineering, country of origin, value, tariffs and duties, trade remedies, drawback, penalties and liquidated damages, protests, intellectual property exclusion orders, and customs broker licensing. Securing favorable results from these courts depends on a detailed understanding of both trade laws and court procedures.
