Donald S. Stein focuses his practice on federal regulatory issues, and in particular U.S. Customs law, trade remedies and trade policy issues. From dealing with imports and the myriad of laws enforced by the U.S. Bureau of Customs and Border Protection (Customs), he has also developed experience in practicing before other federal regulatory agencies, including the Food and Drug Administration, the Federal Trade Commission (FTC), and the Consumer Product Safety Commission. He is also experienced in working with both the U.S. Department of Commerce and the Office of the U.S. Trade Representative in connection with trade law and trade policy issues.
In the Customs area, Don has wide-ranging experience representing clients in the apparel and agriculture sectors, as well as in many other industries, in tariff classification, valuation, country of origin and country of origin marking matters, as well as defending clients against Customs claims for penalties, liquidated damages, and/or the redelivery of goods. He has also worked closely with U.S. intellectual property owners to help protect their intellectual property against unauthorized and infringing imports. Under the Customs regime of "informed compliance," Don has worked with his clients to advise and ensure that they structure their import operations in a manner that is fully compliant with all Customs rules and regulations. He has also worked with clients to design and implement Customs compliance programs.
In the trade policy area, Don has represented the interest of clients in trade preference matters (free trade agreements and special trade programs), as well as in matters pending before the Congress which may affect their interests. He also provides advice to clients on World Trade Organization (WTO) related issues.
From his representation of foreign exporters and U.S. importers of food products and other types of products regulated by U.S. Food and Drug Administration, Don has developed valuable skills in FDA-related matters. In addition to his Customs and FDA-related practices, he counsels clients with respect to matters requested by the FTC and the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission.
