Although often discussed as separate considerations, international trade matters and national security policy naturally intersect, sometimes in unexpected ways for trade law practitioners. This program, taught by Laura Fraedrich and Lindsay Nelson of Jones Day, will explore the various considerations that tie together international trade and national security policy, with a focus on economic sanctions and export control developments under the Trump Administration. The course will also review current policies and practices related to the review of foreign direct investment by the Committee on Foreign Investment in the United States and the Defense Security Service. Finally, the program will cover recent developments related to trade agreement negotiations.
For more than 20 years, Laura Fraedrich has been helping clients achieve their goals in complex international trade matters, including CFIUS, economic sanctions, export control, customs, and trade remedy matters. Clients in the energy, semiconductor, telecommunications, aerospace and defense, and transportation sectors have relied on Laura to handle their CFIUS filings.
Lindsey Nelson focuses her practice on advising clients regarding compliance with government regulations, with a particular concentration on compliance with international trade regulations. She represents individuals and public and private entities in all aspects of counseling and internal investigations, as well as in civil and criminal investigations and prosecutions.
Lindsey assists companies and organizations with compliance with the U.S. export controls, including the sanctions administered by the Office of Foreign Assets Control (OFAC), the Export Administration Regulations (EAR), and the International Traffic in Arms Regulations (ITAR). Such compliance activities include determining and obtaining proper licenses, conducting internal investigations, and advocating for clients in disclosures to and negotiations with relevant government agencies. Lindsey has significant experience drafting documents necessary for export control compliance and enforcement activities, including voluntary self-disclosures and responses to government inquiries, commodity jurisdiction requests, commodity classification requests, license applications, and compliance manuals. She also conducts training programs for clients on export control compliance.
In addition to her international trade work, Lindsey has represented government contractors in False Claims Act matters, including qui tam litigation, and other government contract regulatory matters. She also has experience advising clients with regard to other facets of international laws and regulations administered by the U.S. government, including compliance with the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act (FCPA) and the Foreign Agents Registration Act (FARA).
