As companies increasingly do business on a global scale, they face new challenges with export control and sanctions compliance.

Restrictions can even apply to purely domestic transfers (“deemed exports”).

Our team conducts internal investigations, prepares voluntary disclosures and defends against civil and criminal enforcement actions. We also conduct due diligence and assist in negotiating language for clients engaged in global M&A activity to avoid violations of U.S. export controls and sanctions.
