rolandshrullI was the outside counsel for Stratus Technologies handling Customs and import-export issues. Jim was my primary contact at Stratus and I dealt with him for several years on many different trade related issues. I always found Jim to be a diligent and enthusiastic worker, who had good technical knowledge of the issues and was always very proactive in addressing issues.
