Export Controls and Economic Sanctions

Conlin Bedard LLP advises clients with respect to all aspects of export controls and economic sanctions. Our lawyers work closely with the Department of Global Affairs Canada, the Controlled Goods Directorate of the Department of Public Services and Procurement Canada, and the Canada Border Services Agency.

Our lawyers have extensive experience in assessing whether export controls apply to particular products or transactions, developing compliance programs, jurisdictional assessments, and obtaining rulings and export permits.

We regularly assist clients in addressing export-control related due diligence issues in the context of acquisitions and other business transactions. We also counsel clients in dealing with issues of potential non-compliance, the implementation of remedial strategies and the voluntary disclosure process.
