Export Controls

The world of export controls is constantly changing. New government regulations, increased enforcement efforts, and a need for companies (and the United States as a whole) to protect its sensitive technology and information demand that businesses remain compliant when it comes to its exports.

Fuerst Ittleman David & Joseph helps domestic companies seeking to expand into worldwide markets. We work from both a legal and business perspective, advising the U.S. companies not only on their legal requirements and alternatives when it comes to export controls, but possible business strategies as well. We do so by thoroughly understanding the realities of the current export regulatory régime and our clients’ business needs to create export compliance programs that foster exports while maintaining compliance, and to respond to government enforcement initiatives when they arise.
