The FTI Consulting Export Controls and Sanctions practice is a truly global practice that operates seamlessly across all jurisdictions and industries to provide timely, comprehensive and practical advice. We help our clients navigate the complexity of export controls and sanctions compliance by simplifying them into manageable, actionable, and auditable internal controls. Our consultants provide insight into the possible interpretations of new sanctions based on foreign policy and national security priorities. We help clients comply with export controls and sanctions laws by carrying out due diligence, preparing licenses and licensing strategies, designing risk models using advanced data analytics, developing practical policies and procedures, and crafting training programs that correspond to the culture and risk-profile of their business.
Our Service Offerings
Our team helps clients develop, design, implement, and test their compliance programs to protect against regulatory risks with minimal disruption of business operations. We conduct risk assessments and gap analyses to support the practical solutions we develop with our clients. Also, we develop and deliver training for our clients where needed and in the format/language that fits their needs best.
Audits, Investigations and Enforcement
We conduct internal audits, internal investigations, and help prepare voluntary disclosures to regulatory agencies. Our extensive experience includes government-initiated inquiries, subpoenas, and investigations on both the civil and criminal side of enforcement. Drawing where needed on the experience of our forensic accounting, data analytics, technology, and white-collar defense colleagues, we assist with allegations of regulatory transgressions. Also, we can drive the full remediation efforts required to completion.
Our team also has unique experience helping companies through major crises related to export controls and sanctions enforcement. FTI Consulting brings together export controls and sanctions experts, litigation consultants, strategic communications professionals, and government relations resources to seamlessly provide a multi-pronged response to challenging situations that present significant reputational risk to our clients.
Independent Monitoring and Oversight
Our team has unparalleled experienced working with companies who are under the intense scrutiny of government mandated audits and monitorships. We can serve as the independent monitor reporting directly to the governments involved or we can serve the target company executives as they work collaboratively with the monitor to ensure the issues that gave rise to the need for the monitor are remediated, and a practical, sustainable, and effective compliance program is put in place.
Transaction Counseling and Licensing Support
Our team can efficiently assess potential hurdles in export transactions, evaluate alternatives, seek authorizations where needed, and identify potential licenses or license exceptions that would apply.
Experience with Cutting-Edge Issues
We handle some of the most difficult areas of export control and sanctions laws, including encryption, de minimis, deemed exports, blocking statute conflicts, intra-company transfers, M&A due diligence and global supply chain restructuring.
