How to Avoid Liability under U.S. Export Controls,
Economic Embargoes, and Sanctions Laws
Trade between countries may seem relatively straightforward, but the legal side of exporting is both complex and obscure. Since penalties for violating these laws are severe, it is important to know how to properly conduct your business.
Join us on September 26 for a seminar on U.S. Export Controls, where attorney Sidney N. Weiss will discuss how these laws affect U.S. and non-U.S. businesses both in the United States and abroad, whether or not these businesses are actually exporting. Mr. Weiss will provide hands-on information on how to avoid liability in these areas and common compliance errors. Real life examples will be conducted to help you accommodate your company’s export activities to the regulations. This seminar is of interest to all industries, but of particular interest to those involved in manufacturing, information technology, banking, insurance, law, and other services.
Sidney N. Weiss, the former President of the Customs and International Trade Bar Associations, is a distinguished customs and international trade attorney in New York. He represents both foreign and U.S. clients from various industries in matters involving export control, sanctions, customs, international trade and transactions, and commercial litigation.
