Operate successfully in an international climate of intensified regulation and enforcement.
Companies doing business in the global marketplace encounter a complex web of international trade and financial compliance requirements administered by various agencies of the U.S. government. These include the Treasury Department’s Office of Foreign Assets Control, the State Department’s Directorate of Defense Controls, and the Committee on Foreign Investment in the United States. Clients also need legal counsel from an attorney who understand economic sanctions and national security licensing restrictions, as well as the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act (FCPA) and international human rights obligations.
Having served as outside general counsel to several business organizations, both large and small, Samuel Morison can assist clients with the particular challenges posed by the FCPA and other international anti-corruption laws. He can create and implement compliance programs, conduct internal investigations to detect and deter violations of the law, and perform assessments and due diligence on potential joint-venture partners and third parties.
Contact our office if you need counsel on compliance issues that arise from international licensing, sales, or marketing. We understand the laws that relate to dealing with government officials and authorities around the world.
