The federal government has established a comprehensive system of licensing requirements and controls to regulate the worldwide transfer of certain U.S. goods, technology, and services. These controls reach not only commodity exports, but also technology transfers and technical assistance involving non-U.S. parties anywhere in the world, including within the geographical United States.
Our attorneys provide compliance counsel and develop compliance programs to help minimize your risk of potential export control violations. We work to obtain licenses and other approvals to enable you to proceed with the exportation of products, equipment, software, and technology. In addition, we perform audits to help you assess your current level of compliance, conduct internal investigations in the event of a potential violation, and defend you against unlawful conduct allegations by the federal government.
