Asked about 1 year ago - Lake Forest, IL

Hello, first of all my apologies as this is not a question. I'm requesting for help as I couldn't find any results while searching for business attorneys for import/export .
Looking for an attorney in Chicago area who could provide overall consultation help for our start up firm towards required export licenses, compliance with federal and state rules and regulations for exports from US to India and defining term and agreements for our firm.
Thank you in advance for your reply.

    Answered . Our firm does a great deal of work both with start-ups and with clients engaged in importing and exporting in the U.S. Our clients are coast to coast here and an increasing number abroad. My experience has been that a good freight forwarder can usually meet your needs at lower cost. You need a good accountant experienced in international transactions to advise regarding tax and related issues, and you need corporate counsel for your set up. Depending on the goods and services you are dealing with you may well find all your needs in import and export can be met by the CPA and freight forwarder.

    I would be happy to pass on the names of the CPA and freight forwarder to which I refer my clients.
