Export Control and International Economic Sanctions

Have you checked whether your exports to certain countries or people are prohibited?

Avoid customs blocks, criminal risks and reputational risks while gaining an advantage over your competitors: hire an experienced lawyer in export control and international economic sanctions.

Export compliance is the ‘vaccine’ for companies of all sizes, because it provides crucial support in the management of so-calledCompliance Risk: it allows companies to run their business safely and avoid commercially and criminally ‘dangerous’ situations and provides companies with all the information they need to understand what the real threats are and take the necessary countermeasures in time to avoid negative consequences.
