This CLE webinar will guide counsel on the evolving tariff landscape. The panel will discuss the tariffs currently in place and the challenges facing U.S. companies. The panel will discuss the impact of new tariffs on importers, exporters, and manufacturers and what they can do to avoid unanticipated costs as well as mitigation strategies and how some opportunities might be seized.

Description

Global trade has been suffering from increasingly aggressive trade action from all corners. This war began in the United States in early 2017, but has now spread around the world. Today, the United States, China, the EU, India and a host of other countries have increased tariffs and import restrictions, and there does not appear to be any end in sight to this conflict.

This increased trade friction has caused significant uncertainty for U.S. companies. American manufacturers are struggling to adjust their supply chains to reduce duty liability. In order to make these adjustments, companies have had to look far more carefully at issues like country of origin and tariff classification than ever before. Companies are also being forced to educate themselves on newly created exclusion processes in order to seek exemptions from these additional duties.

Listen as our authoritative panel discusses strategies to cope with this ever evolving tariff landscape. The panel will discuss how new tariffs are impacting importers, exporters, and manufacturers and what they can do to avoid unanticipated costs as well as mitigation strategies – and equally, how some opportunities might be seized.
