David has been an attorney practicing in the area of international trade and customs law for over 25 years. As an associate, then partner at Barnes, Richardson & Colburn David has presented countless education seminars to CCBFA membership. This continues a 50-year relationship between the CCBFA and Barnes/Richardson, stretching back to the 1970s.
In 2017 David became a licensed Customs broker through the Port of Chicago. He utilizes his broker’s license through Barnes Global Trade, which is a wholly-owned customs brokerage and consulting firm.
I would like to continue volunteering with the CCBFA because I have seen the very good work the group has done over the years. Continuing to provide a local outlet for the field to interact with the agencies, recruit new talent, and provide educational opportunities are all vital activities. I would like to do my part in continuing those efforts.
