Our Services

In an era when international transactions are influenced by such issues as: export control reform; globalization; outsourcing; an international labor pool; company and industry consolidation via acquisitions, mergers and divestitures; internet connectivity; “intangible” data transfers; and an increasing emphasis on commercial-off-the-shelf (“COTS”) and “dual-use” solutions in government procurement, the export regulations present a complicated set of requirements for your business.  These issues often affect the day-to-day business decisions that companies face.  For example, these requirements intersect with compliance obligations arising from other regimes, such as: labor laws and hiring practices; the ever-changing immigration requirements; intellectual property considerations; and mandatory reporting and recordkeeping under Sarbanes-Oxley.  We assist companies with understanding how the export regulations impact the various aspects of their business to enable them to make educated business decisions.  Our attorneys are experienced in analyzing this myriad of requirements to fashion holistic export solutions for high-tech and defense industry leaders and members of the academic community, including those involved in:

  • Information technology;
  • software development;
  • aerospace and defense;
  • space and satellites;
  • simulation and training;
  • biotechnology; and
  • computer hardware.


We bring a wealth of experience and expertise in areas including:

  • Conducting due diligence of proposed, acquisitions, mergers and divestitures to assess risks and liabilities associated with export compliance;
  • Classification of goods and services under the export laws to determine jurisdictional and licensing requirements;
  • Assessing the applicability of U.S. export control laws to foreign national employees and obtaining U.S. Government authorizations to conduct “deemed” exports to such persons in the United States;
  • Reviewing contracts and agreements to assess export risks and liabilities and appropriately assign compliance responsibilities;
  • Obtaining appropriate export licenses and agreements, in a timely manner, to permit transactions to proceed;
  • Developing compliance programs that address regulatory requirements in business and academic environments;
  • Training staff, management and employees to recognize and comply with the export laws;
  • Conducting audits and reviews of all aspects of company compliance programs, policies, procedures and formulating effective remedial measures;
  • Developing strategies for submitting voluntary disclosures to U.S. Government agencies; and
  • Conducting internal investigations, and designing remedial measures.
