As a member of the firm’s International practice group, Scott understands that government actions increasingly affect companies involved in the global trade of goods and services. To manage those added risks associated with overseas transactions, Scott handles international corporate compliance issues and global transactions for foreign and domestic companies in a wide variety of industries. His knowledge of local legal requirements, including domestic import and export regulations and national data protection laws in many countries, helps organizations enhance their worldwide networks while saving time and money.
As globalization continues to take hold, Scott advises clients on compliance concerns, including licensing and regulatory needs related to such U.S. export controls as the Export Administration Act and Regulations (EAA/EAR), the International Traffic in Arms Regulations (ITAR), economic sanctions regimes, anti-boycott laws, embargoed country trade, and anti-bribery laws, such as the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act (FCPA) and the UK Bribery Act.
