Cross-Border Practice

Effective communication remains a prime concern of legal practitioners, everyday citizens, consumers, governments, and business people around the globe. Being an international citizen by nature, Mr. George has studied on three continents and, where and when the time permits, he endeavors to maintain fluency or conversational proficiency in 5 (“five”) languages. The wonders of modern technology now also allow people to communicate over great distances by transmitting voice, video, and data traffic via satellites, terrestrial wireless systems, undersea cables, and fixed landlines. While serving as an intern at the United States Federal Communications Commission (FCC), in Washington, D.C., Mr. George worked in the Satellite Policy Branch of the International Bureau (I.B.). There, he performed comprehensive analyses of satellite license applications, and he drafted both a Public Notice, and a Report and Order for the I.B.

Being dually licensed in both Canada and the United States, he can readily provide advice and counsel on cross-border trade, inquiries, disputes, or transactions in those jurisdictions of the United States of America, on questions of American Federal law, and regarding both Ontario laws and Canadian Federal laws.

Mr. George is, or has been, a member of the Section of International Law and Policy of the American Bar Association., as well as a member of the Federal Communications Bar Association.
