Aug. 6, 2018 - International trade and customs law firm Sandler, Travis & Rosenberg, P.A. (ST&R) announced today that Miami-based attorney Lenny Feldman has been named co-chair of U.S. Customs and Border Protection’s Commercial Customs Operations Advisory Committee. COAC is a 20-member committee that advises U.S. Customs and Border Protection as well as the departments of Homeland Security and the Treasury on strategic matters impacting import enforcement and procedures, export and other agency facilitation, and supply chain security as well as emerging issues such as e-commerce.
“I’m grateful for the confidence of my peers and the opportunity to help further strengthen cooperation between the federal government and the trade during this transformative time,” Feldman said. “Both the public and private sectors want to streamline legitimate trade while targeting bad actors, but today’s rapidly evolving trade environment can make that challenging. My goal is to help COAC continue to focus the best efforts of the trade community on developing innovative solutions that work for all stakeholders through direct, candid dialogue.”
“We are proud of what Lenny has accomplished since first being named to COAC three years ago, and we are pleased that he will be taking on an expanded role,” said ST&R Founding Partner Lee Sandler. “He’s been a tireless and ambitious advocate for the trade community, both as a COAC member and in other capacities, and we’re confident of his success in this increased capacity.”
Feldman has long been involved as a leader on trade issues. He currently serves as legal counsel to the Florida Customs Brokers & Freight Forwarders Association and as committee chair of the Miami-Dade County International Trade Consortium. He also sits on the boards of the South Florida District Export Council and recently completed a term as chairman.
At ST&R Feldman is a member of the Operating Committee, which oversees the firm’s operations and sets its strategic vision, and co-chairs the Import/Export Practice Group. He is recognized as a leader in educating business officials and elected officials at the local, state, and federal levels concerning international trade and business reform. Before joining ST&R he served as a senior attorney with the U.S. Customs Service, where he built strong relationships that he still values today.
