I authored "Recent Developments in Food and Drug Law, 2012 Edition" which was just published by Thomas Reuters. It is part of a series called "Inside the Minds" written by attorney thought-leaders in food and drug law from the top law firms across the United States. It analyzes the latest food and drug laws, regulations and policies that affect food and drug companies. It also focuses on violations by persons and companies, and how to successfully defend any investigation by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) without having to go to court.

U.S. Customs and Border Protection's Global Entry program is a smashing succcess.

Hundreds of people apply every year to become a customs broker. Customs brokers are licensed by U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP). The process requires passing a rigorous multiple choice examination, and then passing a background investigation. For many applicants who successfully pass the examination, they are denied a license because the background investigation revealed a poor credit history and rating. Don't give up hope.
