He has also represented clients in litigation before the U.S. Court of International Trade.

Mr. Mojica has a successful track record of helping companies develop and implement customs compliance programs covering topics such as tariff classification, valuation, free trade agreements, country of origin marking, intellectual property rights (IPR) enforcement, duty drawback, and AD/CVD orders.
