In March, 2005, I met with and made presentations to various government officials and local attorneys in Baku, Azerbaijan concerning intellectual property rights; I reviewed various Azerbaijan intellectual property laws for purposes of surveying and evaluating the then-current status of Azerbaijan intellectual property rights legislation and enforcement for purposes of suggesting approaches to take with objective of being taken off the USTR 2004 Special Section 301 Watch List.

In May, 2013, I again provided consulting services in Baku where I conducted training concerning a 70-page comparative study that I authored  on international practices concerning intellectual property anti-piracy and counterfeit goods.  In addition I analyzed and made recommended changes to the Law of Azerbaijan Republic on the Provision of Intellectual Property Rights and Fight Against Piracy as well as provided training to Copyright Agency officials and to business owners.
