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

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.

What Our Clients Say


Marcus F.

Sequoia Legal found subtle legal loopholes in some of our confidentiality agreements that could have spelled disaster for our small business. Fortunately, with the help of Sequoia Legal, we were able to get these leaks plugged before they did any serious damage to our company.


Cyndi S.

Our company operates in a highly regulated industry. Sequoia Legal has been our go-to law firm for years now. I am happy to say that we have never suffered a serious regulatory noncompliance problem, and Sequoia Legal has quickly resolved the few minor problems that did arise.


Jake D.

Our company’s trade secret protection system was a ticking time bomb waiting to explode. Sequoia helped us revamp the system so that it complies with both state and federal law. I cannot recommend their services highly enough.


Teresa M.

We ran into a hit on the SDN list. It turned out to be a case of mistaken identity, and Sequoia Legal helped us resolve the issue in a quick and cost-efficient manner. Very professional and knowledgeable.


Mike C.

A couple of years ago, our company had no compliance program to speak of, and we were barely aware of the existence of OFAC regulations. Sequoia Legal helped us get our house in order, and we have had no problems since then.


Jacqueline K.

We contacted Sequoia Law after an internal audit revealed that our company had inadvertently committed two substantial OFAC violations over the past two years. We chose the path of voluntary disclosure to OFAC and received lenient penalties. Many thanks to Sequoia for their adroit handling of the matter.


Wilson B.

We are an out-of-state company that hired Sequoia Legal to crack down on some Colorado companies that were blatantly infringing our trademarks and software copyrights. Sequoia Legal shut them down in a matter of weeks and secured generous compensation for our damages.`Sequoia Legal epitomizes professionalism.


Walter R.

Our previous attorney had drafted us NDAs that were so full of holes that it left unscrupulous former employees almost complete freedom to deal with our trade secrets as they wished. Sequoia Legal helped us plug those loopholes and prevent further leakage of valuable trade secrets. I can’t recommend them highly enough.


Grace F.

We hired Sequoia Legal to help us organize and protect our intellectual property needs. They identified problems we didn’t even know we had, and they helped us head off serious oversights that might have bankrupted our company if we hadn’t caught them in time.


Gary D.

Sequoia Legal has been helping us with regulatory compliance matters for years now. So far, we have not had a single complaint lodged against us by any patient or entity, and no enforcement actions have been implemented or threatened. I can’t praise them enough.
