On July 27, 2010, we hosted a discussion on current developments in the first sale duty savings program; strategies to maximize benefits for existing programs; and issues regarding record-keeping and the validation of both related and unrelated transactions. The presentation also focuses on the likely effect of political initiatives in the United States, European Union and at the World Trade Organization that may affect the future viability of this program. The program featured Alan Klestadt, a partner in Grunfeld, Desiderio, Lebowitz, Silverman & Klestadt LLP, a law firm specializing the practice of customs and international trade matters. The practice is devoted to assisting clients in structuring their import transactions in order to minimize Customs duties, ensure regulatory compliance and eliminate Customs penalty exposure. Alan has extensive experience in managing compliance reviews and developing strategies to maximize import opportunities. He has lectured frequently on issues relating to Customs valuation, import strategy and regulatory compliance.
