Steinman & Rodgers LLP provides its clients with a full range of legal services in the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act field. With almost five decades of combined experience in FCPA work, we are conversant in the law, the burgeoning number of settlements and deferred prosecutions, and prevailing industry standards and trends.

We recognize that FCPA compliance is not an academic exercise for our clients. Our clients must mesh their compliance obligations with their overall strategies and the need to get business done. We pride ourselves as being business lawyers. Rather than simply raising red flags, we strive to help our clients navigate through the challenges of cross-border commerce, comply with their legal obligations, and fulfill their business goals.

 

 

U.S. regulations governing the international sale of defense articles and services are highly complex. Inadvertent transgressions of the U.S. International Traffic in Arms Regulations ("ITAR") can result in significant fines, or even the loss of export privileges. Companies selling controlled products and services overseas therefore need experienced counsel to help navigate these issues safely.

Steinman & Rodgers has significant experience advising clients regarding ITAR compliance, including the development and implementation of compliance programs, managing the challenges of deemed exports in an increasingly multinational business climate, real-time support for empowered officials, broker registration and reporting requirements and the maintenance of compliant record-keeping systems. We also frequently assist clients with the periodic testing and monitoring of existing compliance programs.

In addition, Steinman & Rodgers attorneys regularly represent clients in the enforcement context, particularly including fact-finding investigations and voluntary disclosures to the Directorate of Defense Trade Controls.

Steinman & Rodgers attorneys have almost five decades of combined experience representing leading U.S. defense and aerospace companies with international business transactions. We combine that intimate knowledge of the industry with our substantive knowledge of the ITAR to furnish our clients with outstanding service.
