Trade and Customs Disputes
The post-conflict era in Sri Lanka has marked a significant development in the import export trade. This, coupled with the government’s measures to bridge the budget deficit, has been hard hitting, exposing many to inquiries and prosecutions.
The litigators in our Customs practice have a thorough understanding of the workings of the Customs Department and the applicable law. They are able to successfully defend customs investigations and, in proper cases, to negotiate and obtain favourable settlements. When appropriate and where clients can obtain better results, we advise them to seek the intervention of Courts.
