As part of an international law firm, we understand pressures on manufacturers created by Arab boycott
regulations and U.S. or European anti-boycott laws.
A Fortune 100 manufacturer encountered boycott-related disclosure requirements in a number of North
African and Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) countries. Like many other manufacturers who export
internationally, it simultaneously had to comply with U.S. anti-boycott laws.
Relying on our extensive regional experience, we advised the client about the appropriate level of
disclosure for each national authority. We coordinated the efforts of our network of local counsels in the
region as well as our celebrated Washington-based International Trade team to make sure that our
client complied with regulations on both sides of the Atlantic.
Now, the manufacturer flourishes in the region as it has returned to producing and exporting at full
capacity after addressing boycott concerns.
