This year, Lee Sandler, Esq., on behalf of the American Free Trade Association (“AFTA™”) conducted a training webinar for Customs & Border Protection (“CBP”) personnel about parallel imports.  AFTA™ was also pleased to host a congressional staff briefing in Washington , D.C. during which Lee Sandler, Fred Paliani and Lauren Perez similarly provided an overview of the secondary marketplace and the ongoing issues challenging our industry.
