Our firm helps companies explore foreign markets and understand the complexities of international trade in a cost-effective, time-efficient, and business-oriented manner.
We offer legal assistance in international sales agreements, international distribution agreements, international shipping, and compliance with United States export controls and economic sanctions administered under the Office of Financial Assets Control (OFAC) Regulations, Export Administration Regulations (EAR), and the International Traffic in Arms Regulations (ITAR).
This work includes assistance in export and import licensing, company training, commodity jurisdiction and classification, development and implementation of trade compliance programs, program benchmarking and audits, internal investigations and voluntary disclosures, and due diligence for mergers, acquisitions, and divestitures.
In addition to representing exporters and importers, we offer assistance to companies engaged in international arms brokering. These activities are highly regulated and can include the financing, transportation, freight forwarding or taking any other action that facilitates the manufacture, export or import of a defense article or defense service.
