A Destination For Tailored Legal Counsel
Arent Fox has one of the largest international trade practices in the United States and has assisted its clients across the full range of trade enforcement and compliance matters.

Of particular relevance to fashion clients is our background in focused assessments, importer self-assessments, investigations, and penalty proceedings involving Customs and Border Protection. We have represented fashion houses on all aspects of these proceedings and in working within the very complex rules relating to country of origin and valuation (including the so-called  “first sale rule”).  Arent Fox also has significant worldwide experience in drafting international corporate documents to minimize the risks on the foreign corporate parent, including related to issues of transfer pricing.
