Fines, Penalties & Forfeitures

Fox attorneys provide pragmatic, informed advocacy, protecting the interests of importers and exporters facing U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) enforcement actions. Our experienced attorneys work to keep clients’ businesses moving while working with CBP to have penalties reduced or withdrawn, and valuable cargo released. We defend clients against broker penalties, Section 592 and 592a penalties, monetary penalties and claims for liquidated damages in addition to handling litigation and appeals, investigations, seizures and recovery.
