Export controls and sanctions are complex, and U.S. law may have extra-territorial effect, thereby covering the export, re-export and in some cases the in-country transfer of goods, technology and software by entities in non U.S. locations. Certain financial transactions may also be governed by the U.S. Office of Foreign Assets Control (OFAC). Non-compliance with export controls and sanctions laws may lead to seizure of goods, financial penalties, criminal prosecution, breach of commercial contract and significant damage to reputation.

I advise clients on multi-jurisdictional export controls and sanctions, including;​

  • Export controls & sanctions of the following jurisdictions:

    • United Kingdom,

    • European Union,

    • United States,

    • Singapore, 

    • Hong Kong

    • Japan

  • U.S. Export Administration Regulations (EAR)

  • U.S. International Traffic in Arms Regulations (ITAR)

  • U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission Regulations (NRCR)

  • U.S. Office of Foreign Assets Control (OFAC)

  • UK Office of Financial Sanctions Implementation (OFSI)

International trade compliance encompasses both legal and technical elements. I am a Chartered Engineer and member of the Institution of Engineering and Technology (IET), as well as a practising lawyer. I am therefore able to advise clients on certain technical issues relating to list controlled goods and technology.
