Since the age of the clipper ships, global trade has been our lifeblood. But the US has often “controlled” exports to withhold strategic materiel – from the Confederacy, the Kaiser, the Japanese, the Soviets and Saddam Hussein – and even to keep Wall Street from financing Hitler or Al-Qaeda. Export Compliance NE brings Vince Canzoneri’s 20 years of large-firm legal experience to bear on the full range of export control concerns, including:
• Export Administration Regulations (EAR), administered by the Commerce Department’s Bureau of Industry & Security (BIS),
• International Traffic in Arms Regulations (ITAR), administered by the State Department’s Directorate of Defense Trade Controls (DDTC), and
• dollar regulations administered by the Treasury Department’s Office of Foreign Assets Control (OFAC).
Services include compliance audits and company-specific design of export control compliance programs; product/technology classification and licensing; visa advice; due diligence in investment transactions; defense of alleged violations; and drafting of international commercial agreements.
