The dynamic world of export controls and sanctions requires experienced counsel to guide businesses and individuals past potential liability exposure. Herischi & Associates LLC’s team assists clients with U.S. export license applications, re-export license applications, deemed export reviews and commodity classification requests, including requests involving encryption items, as required by the Export Administration Regulations (EAR). We regularly counsel businesses on creating and implementing programs for compliance with the EAR, embargoes and sanctions administered by the U.S. Treasury Department’s Office of Foreign Assets Controls (OFAC), and the International Traffic in Arms Regulations (ITAR), particularly those programs designed to control export to Iran. We also offer representation to our clients in adversarial proceedings before BIS and OFAC related to appeals of license denials and defense of enforcement actions.
