孖士打(Mayer Brown)的制裁及出口管制团队帮助客户遵守和应对联合国、美国、欧盟、英国和多边机构实施的复杂制裁,以及对商品、软件、技术和辅助服务出口及再出口的种种限制。我们的工作范围涵盖商业管制、军民两用管制和军用管制,包括对视同出口的管制。

我们协助客户解决各种制裁计划下出现的合规问题,这些制裁计划包括对相关国家的制裁和清单式制裁。由于我们经常与制裁及出口管制监管机构联系,本所团队对于各机构如何在特定情况下解释和执行法规有着深入了解。本所律师经常在主要监管机构面前代表我们的客户,这些机构包括美国海外资产控制办公室(OFAC)、美国国务院和商务部、英国金融制裁执行办公室(OFSI)、英国出口管制联合工作组(ECJU)、欧盟机构和欧盟成员国主管当局。

我们的行业经验广泛,客户包括科技企业、物流公司、消费品和工业设备制造商、航空航天和国防企业、金融机构、保险公司等等。本所律师总是能够从内部人士的视角提供眼光独到的法律建议,因为我们团队的许多成员曾经在政府担任要职(例如OFAC前执法主管)或在企业内部出口职能部门(例如一家在美国国务院监督下的国防承包商的出口部门)担任高级职位。

本所的制裁及出口管制团队知道如何以最佳方式解决每名客户面临的独特难题,处理不同司法管辖区之间的法律矛盾和摩擦。我们帮助世界各地的客户了解联合国、美国、欧盟、英国和其他管辖机构的要求,以及如何在遵守这些要求的同时遵守本国法律,并遵循自己的内部合规计划。我们常驻华盛顿、布鲁塞尔和伦敦的律师密切协作,共同向客户就全球制裁及出口管制问题提供咨询服务。

正如许多评论员所预料的那样,乌克兰的紧张局势已经升级。欢迎浏览本所的相关经验,了解我们可以如何为受到影响的客户提供协助
