Compliance
Barnes/Richardson provides practical and effective assistance in the development and implementation of Export Management Systems to allow global traders to engage in the transfer of products and information across borders confident that they are in compliance with the law with regard to exports, re-exports and deemed exports. In doing so, we examine process flows to eliminate complexity and waste, strengthen knowledge and management decision-making in day-to-day operations, and conduct internal staff training to assist in maintaining complex compliance initiatives once the Export Management System is in place.

Licensing
Whether the jurisdiction for a particular transaction is properly with the Bureau of Export Administration of the Commerce Department, the State Department or the Office of Foreign Assets Control of the Treasury Department, Barnes/Richardson can quickly and effectively analyze proposed transactions and apply the laws and regulations to determine whether a license is required. If so, we can present the matter to the agency concerned in such a way that the license is granted as quickly and efficiently as possible. In addition, Barnes/Richardson will advise on the scope of the license and the proper application of the license so that the exporter is clear as to its privileges and responsibilities.

Embargoes
The embargo regulations of the Office of Foreign Assets Control are complex and subject to continual change. Further, the agency provides little guidance in the way of published opinions or rulings. Multinationals operating in this environment are often unsure of the course they must take in order to remain in compliance with U.S. law while not unnecessarily bypassing legally allowable business activity. Barnes/Richardson is able to draw upon its experience in these situations to provide sound and practical guidance.

Investigations and Enforcement
Barnes/Richardson is prepared to assist should the client receive a summons, subpoena or otherwise be the subject of a civil or criminal investigation. Such investigations are becoming more common and an ever more important tool of the government to ensure export compliance. At such times, expert and experienced counsel is essential. Barnes/Richardson fills that role.
