Updated March 10, 2017: The Thompson Coburn Trade Compliance Handbook—a useful tool for corporate general counsel, as well as compliance, customs and audit personnel—provides an overview of international trade regulatory compliance issues and related terms. It includes a comprehensive and easy-to-use dictionary of more than 175 trade terms, including those related to customs compliance, export controls, country of origin, foreign investment, international finance and immigration, as well as the many trade-related acronyms, such as CBP, ITAR, EAR, DDTC, OFAC, FCPA and more. There is also an index to help quickly identify important regulations. Check it out and let us know if there are any customs- and export-related-terms that you would like us to add.
Although we would like to hear from you, we cannot represent you until we know that doing so will not create a conflict of interest. Also, we cannot treat unsolicited information as confidential. Accordingly, please do not send us any information about any matter that may involve you until you receive a written statement from us that we represent you (an ‘engagement letter’).
By clicking the ‘ACCEPT’ button, you agree that we may review any information you transmit to us. You recognize that our review of your information, even if you submitted it in a good faith effort to retain us, and, further, even if you consider it confidential, does not preclude us from representing another client directly adverse to you, even in a matter where that information could and will be used against you. Please click the ‘ACCEPT’ button if you understand and accept the foregoing statement and wish to proceed.
