Additionally, he provides international trade consulting services which focus on international trade regulatory compliance, foreign trade zones and customs bonded warehouses, and export–import management. As a recognized authority on a variety of international legal issues, he has served on numerous occasions as a consultant to law firms as an expert on international trade matters and frequently provides training to companies on export and import compliance.
