International Export Controls and Sanctions
As the Department of Justice increases its oversight of U.S. companies doing business in the international arena, the prudent manager must be prepared to seek legal counsel concerning export controls and should not hesitate to initiate internal investigations when the government alleges violations of internal export control regulations or the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act (FCPA).
From working with the U.S. Department of Justice on advisory opinions to representing individuals and corporations being investigated by federal grand juries, The Asa Hutchinson Law Group, PLC, assists U.S. businesses in dealing with issues such as:
- Compliance with export regulations, especially those involving arms, arms training and sophisticated technology
- State Department licensing for defense products
- Internal investigations of alleged violations
- Serving as an independent monitor for defense companies such as Blackwater
- Compliance with export sanctions for certain countries
- Defending companies accused of export violations
Companies who are found to have violated export regulations can face tens of millions of dollars in fines and could be delisted and barred from obtaining export licenses in the future. With consequences like these, you want to have the best possible defense attorneys on your side.
