Instructor Profile:

Scott Lowden, is the author of Import Transactions and Customs Compliance, a comprehensive guide for importers and trade practitioners published in 2013. Mr. Lowden is a graduate of Wesleyan University, Middletown, Connecticut and Harvard Law School. He has served as a senior executive and head of the legal departments of four transnational companies, including two Fortune 100 companies. For ten years he was Of Counsel with a nationally known trade law firm in Dallas, Texas and he is currently practicing independently. He has spoken frequently on international topics and written articles for the Harvard International Law Review, the University of Colorado Law Review, The Business Lawyer of the American Bar Association and The Texas Lawyer on subjects ranging from international trade to techniques for the resolution of internal and external corporate conflicts.

Topic Background:

A lot of time and attention is given to policies, procedures, manuals and audit procedures for employees and representatives of importers to assure compliance with customs regulations and other legal requirements. Not nearly as much attention is given to the contracts that importers sign with their suppliers, distributors, brokers and carriers. Often these contracts are sources of compliance infractions. Yet if they are properly conceived and drafted they can substantially reduce risk and enhance compliance with the help of the importer’s contract partners.
