Welcome to David Hayes-Export Controls®

Was established to provide rapid, professional, practical and cost-effective advice and assistance to companies currently affected by export controls or who are considering entering the market place but are unsure of the commercial and regulatory implications.

We have extensive expertise in UK and EU export controls and sanctions; US export controls under ITAR, EAR as well as the Department of Energy and Nuclear Regulatory Commission and sanctions administered by the Office of Foreign Assets Control (OFAC) and the Department of State.  This extensive experience often enables complex or unusual matters to be resolved relatively quickly.

In addition, our links to a network of other consultants mean that we are able to assist companies with export control issues around the world.

Export compliance should also form part of any due diligence during M&A activity, as companies expand by acquisition or create joint ventures to pursue strategic goals, since prior non-compliance by a target may have serious implications post-closure.

For further information on the support we can offer your business, please see our services pages.
