Overview

Spanning our Business, Administrative and Litigation departments, Foley Hoag’s Trade Sanctions and Export Controls Practice offers experienced, proactive regulatory advice to help clients avoid regulatory compliance missteps and to prevail in official proceedings.

Trade regulations are a constant challenge to companies of every size in every industry. Export control laws govern every product and service from technology to charitable work. The Trade Sanctions and Export Controls Practice counsels clients on which products and services fall under regulations, where they can be exported, to whom, and what they can be used for. We have particular expertise in advising on Department of Treasury Office of Foreign Assets Control (“OFAC”) and Department of Commerce Bureau of Industry and Security (“BIS”) regulations and the implementation of appropriate compliance policies and procedures. In addition, our attorneys have provided representation on investigations and administrative and judicial actions involving allegations of export controls violations.

We have helped clients in a broad range of industry sectors, including manufacturing, oil and gas, technology, professional services and nonprofit entities. Foley Hoag’s Trade Sanctions and Export Controls Practice provides the advice and guidance necessary for these businesses to stay in compliance with U.S. requirements.
