International Business Law

U.S. laws, regulations and Executive Orders that restrict or prohibit the export, reexport and transfer of commodities, technologies, software and services to foreign nationals, entities and destinations in foreign countries pose significant compliance challenges for U.S. and foreign companies and investors.

The fast-paced, ever-changing nature of comprehensive and targeted economic sanctions and embargoes against certain countries, groups, entities and sectors are particularly challenging. Our attorneys routinely advise and represent clients on how these legal regimes that govern a wide variety of business activities – ranging from mergers and acquisitions to hiring employees who are foreign nationals, operating overseas subsidiaries, and forming strategic alliances – can result in significant civil and criminal penalties, as well as the loss of exporting privileges and debarment.
