Canada Customs Lawyer
A “Customs lawyer” is typically a lawyer whose practice is focussed on Customs or international trade issues. Canada’s Customs Act and Customs Tariff, and their subsidiary regulations, form the basis for Canada’s customs laws, and a Customs lawyer would be expected to have a fundamental understanding of how all of these laws and regulations operated, and would typically be familiar with most issues arising in the Customs context.
A Customs lawyer will often also represent clients before many different levels of government (audits, objections, appeals). Many Customs lawyers will also represent clients in appeals to the Canadian International Trade Tribunal, and sometimes, in the Tax Court of Canada.
Some Customs lawyers will practice in a variety of areas, while other Customs lawyers may focus exclusively on certain types of Customs issues. Generally speaking, a Customs lawyer will be more familiar with the Customs laws and regulations than a general practitioner.
