Outlook on Trade 2021 Webinar Series | New Course for Trade and Customs Law Enforcement: False Claims Litigation and Forced Labor Detentions


View Recording

Recent developments in trade and customs law are leading to new disputes and enforcement activities under the False Claims Act and under statutory and regulatory provisions prohibiting the import of goods targeted by Customs for forced labor concerns. While both provisions of law have existed for a long time, current enforcement activities and certain amendments to the law have made these areas a new concern to many in the importing community.

Businesses should be aware of these new enforcement actions and take proactive steps to avoid the severe assessments, penalties and results that can result from adverse findings. In this webinar, we will review the main principles of law, assess the business risks and discuss ways to mitigate those risks.
