Export controls and economic sanctions increasingly affect the day-to-day business operations across the globe. No company with cross-border operations or even a multinational work force is immune from their application or can afford to ignore these laws. Though once a relatively esoteric area of legal practice, controls over the export of goods, technology, and services now represent a basic element of corporate compliance whether your client is involved in import/export activity, mergers & acquisitions, joint ventures, licensing agreements, distribution contracts, or banking and finance transactions. This book is intended as an overview of this complex and dynamic body of law. It proves to be a valuable resource to both seasoned and novice practitioners alike, providing a thorough and practical guide that can assist counsel and compliance professionals in identifying the myriad issues, navigating the rules, and managing client risks in the challenging but fascinating area of export controls and economic sanctions law.
