Evelyn focuses on international trade and regulatory compliance to guide clients through federal law and regulations impacting domestic and international transactions.
Evelyn draws on her experience working with government agencies and projects to navigate her clients through complex matters such as import/export regulations, international sanctions, product classifications, and comprehensive due diligence evaluations. She advocates for clients by preparing product and tariff classification protests, country of origin and classification analyses, valuation and export disclosures, and by helping clients navigate audits and risk assessments conducted by the federal government.
Evelyn takes a multifaceted approach to trade compliance and empowers clients to be proactive in their due diligence. She has assisted with internal auditing to keep businesses apprised of their risks and mitigate potential legal issues. She provides practical and forward-looking guidance on developing areas of the law such as the sanctions affecting Russia, Belarus, and Ukraine, and the impact of Section 301 tariffs on importations from China and possible exclusions, recovering significant resources for clients and preventing legal risks associated with controlled exports.
Evelyn additionally assists with counseling clients in the finance sector on regulatory compliance and refinancing matters, including the support of several transactions of the Export-Import (EXIM) Bank of the United States including the restructuring of guaranteed loans to a Mexican drilling company.
Evelyn received her J.D. from Washington and Lee University School of Law, where she served as the Symposium Editor for the Washington and Lee Journal of Civil Rights and Social Justice.
