Barnes/Richardson provides practical and effective to help clients development and implementation Export Management Systems. An EMS allows traders to transfer products and information across borders confident that they are in compliance with the law regarding exports, re-exports and deemed exports. 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.

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.

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.
