What do companies with EU or US locations or operations need to consider with respect to trade controls compliance in 2018? How is the EU reacting to changes from Brexit and the Trump administration? What issues under EU and US trade controls should practitioners be on the lookout for in 2018? What pressing issues are trade compliance practitioners hearing from clients?

Ms. Kovarovics counsels US and non-US private and publicly held companies in a variety of industries on matters involving US export controls and economic sanctions, US anti-boycott laws, and the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act (FCPA).
