Sequoia Legal provides expert legal advice on dealing with a number of government agencies that oversee importing and exporting goods.

Our expertise spans:

  • Export Control License Requirements
  • US Export Control Compliance
  • Export Administration Regulations (EAR)
  • International Traffic in Arms Regulations (ITAR)
  • Directorate of Defense Trade Controls (DDTC) Compliance
  • Bureau of Industry and Security (BIS) Requirements

We help companies manage export compliance audits and oversee export compliance classification, providing direct support and technical assistance for ongoing projects and business expansion, as well as compliance training that teaches members of your staff the ins and outs of U.S. trade laws.

If you are already experiencing legal complications, our international trade experts can also directly assist with internal export audits, subpoenas, and government inquiries and investigations for both criminal and civil matters.

We’ll ensure you stay on the right side of the law, allowing you to grow your business globally.

US Economic Sanctions Compliance

Sanctions and embargoes are an everyday reality for international trade, and it’s important that you understand them. The Office of Foreign Assets Control currently has sanctions in place on at least a dozen countries, which include:

  • Zimbabwe
  • Venezuela
  • Ukraine
  • Syria
  • Sudan
  • South Sudan
  • Somalia
  • Russia
  • North Korea
  • Libya
  • Iran
  • Cuba
  • Burma

The OFAC list is always subject to change, too. So when you’re doing business internationally, international trade and OFAC lawyers from Sequoia Legal are an invaluable asset to your company.

We are highly experienced and recognized professionals in economic sanctions compliance, advising companies and actively representing businesses and entrepreneurs dealing with the intricacies of trading globally.

With a comprehensive, forward-thinking approach, we’ll ensure that you are fully equipped to stay within sanctions rules, to assist your company in setting up new international trading opportunities and advising on all relevant laws to your foreign activities.

International and Cross-Border Transactions

Cross-border transactions include the transfer of stock, property, or other financial obligations between individuals and companies in two different countries or tax jurisdictions. And these transactions often require a dedicated law firm to ensure they’re being executed properly.  

To ensure that your company is trading legally and responsibly, our expert international trade lawyers will assist your business in creating contracts for those transactions, defining the right method of trade, and implementing dispute resolution mechanisms that protect you in the event of a disagreement.

 We work with small and medium-sized Denver businesses, handling the legal complexity of cross-border transactions with fixed, affordable fees. We’ll help you manage international contracts suitable for a wide variety of sectors and use our expertise to ensure you never fall foul of the rules.

CFIUS Regulations of Foreign Investments

The Committee on Foreign investment in the United States (CFIUS) is an interagency committee that oversees transactions between the United States and foreign entities. Our team of CFIUS attorneys keeps your company compliant with all regulations particularly with regards to investments by Chinese companies and persons as well as foreign trade with nations with less-than-ideal diplomatic relations with the United States.

We are national leaders in international trade law, helping you navigate a wide range of regulatory systems with comprehensive and affordable guidance, representation, and direct involvement in your mitigation agreements, transactions, contracts, and more.

We’ll advise you on how to handle CFIUS notifications and manage trade negotiations and regulatory matters on energy infrastructure, technology and telecommunications companies, and more.

If your accepting investments from overseas, we’ll make sure you do so in adherence to all relevant regulations.
