“She will work on behalf of clients in all these areas to initiate, shape and influence the development of laws, regulations, policies and trade agreements that affect clients’ interests,” KMZ Rosenman said. “She will also assist clients with compliance reviews, strategic planning and legal advice on complex issues such as origin, implementation of trade preference programs, supply chain security, internal controls, self-assessments, government audits and compliance programs.”
Before joining KMZ Rosenman, Fuchs served 14 years with Motorola and was recently the company’s vice president and director of global trade compliance. She also served as counsel for the Defense Department’s Defense Fuel Supply Center prior to joining Motorola.

In this role, Fuchs will work on an array of Customs issues, such as implementation of the agency’s advance manifest regulation, focused assessments audits, implementation of 2002 Trade Act provisions, and development processes for broader informed compliance rulings.
