Durante las pasadas semanas, Harris Bricken ha estado trabajando sin parar asesorando a clientes que interesados en importar equipo de protección personal (en inglés, PPE) y otros productos relacionados a la lucha contra el coronavirus, en particular de China.

For the past few weeks, Harris Bricken has been working nonstop as we advise clients interested in importing personal protective equipment (PPE) and other COVID-19 related products, particularly from China.

Unfortunately, just as these products are most needed, the risks that have always been present when importing Chinese products have become more acute. These include delivery of defective or non-compliant products, as well as scams by people who falsely claim to have connections with manufacturers in China.

In this short video, our attorney Fred Rocafort explains the due diligence process carried out by our firm when a client wishes to import PPE or related products from China.

Fred is a former diplomat who joined Harris Bricken after more than a decade of international legal experience, primarily in China, Vietnam, and Thailand. His wide range of experience includes starting and operating his own business in Asia, working as an in-house counsel for a Hong Kong-based multinational, as well as many years as a State Department official, providing a client-centric perspective to his legal work. Fred co-hosts Harris Bricken’s weekly Global Law and Business podcast, which covers legal and economic developments in locales around the world to decipher global trends in law and business with the help from international guests.

Fred began his career overseas as a U.S. vice-consul in Guangzhou, China, adjudicating thousands of visa applications and advocating for fairer treatment of American companies and citizens in China and for stronger anti-counterfeiting enforcement. After entering the private sector, Fred worked at a Shanghai law firm as a foreign legal advisor and later joined one of the oldest American law firms in China. He also led the legal team at a Hong Kong-based brand protection consultancy, spending most of his time out in the field, protecting clients against counterfeiters and fraudsters from Binh Duong to Buenos Aires.

Fred is an ardent supporter of FC Barcelona—and would be even in the absence of Catalan forebears who immigrated to Puerto Rico in the mid-1800s. An avid explorer of Hong Kong’s countryside, he now spends much of his free time discovering the Pacific Northwest’s natural charms.
