Robert Shapiro advises clients on issues concerning compliance with export controls governing dual-use goods under the EAR and munitions under the ITAR; economic sanctions by OFAC; FCPA issues; and customs compliance issues.
Robert’s technical background is particularly valuable in understanding international trade issues confronted by the electronics, chemical, pharmaceutical and industrial industries. Robert served as the vice president of a major logistics firm prior to entering the practice of law, where he developed an understanding of the systems and procedures needed to minimise the impact of compliance on the movement of goods. This experience enables him to provide his clients with a unique insight into both the transportation and regulatory aspects of trade, and the practical implications of compliance and enforcement measures.
Robert is the Co-Chair of the Export Controls and Sanctions committee of the Customs and International Trade Bar Association.
