Duane Morris LLP seeks a junior to mid-level international trade associate to join its Government Contracts and International Trade Group.
The ideal candidate will have two to four years of international trade experience, with an emphasis on compliance with U.S. export controls (EAR and ITAR), trade and economic sanctions (OFAC), and anti-boycott controls. Candidates who also have experience in import and customs issues (e.g., classification, valuation, marking, preference claims, trade remedies) will be considered. Specific experience advising U.S. and non-U.S. companies on licensing, enforcement actions and governmental audits, internal investigations and compliance audits, disclosures, classification, encryption, compliance due diligence in mergers and acquisitions and other cross-border transactions, and on the design, implementation, and administration of compliance programs is preferred.
Candidates must have strong writing and research skills. Candidates must be capable of interacting with clients on time-sensitive, complex and high value procurement activities. As a prerequisite to interviews, candidates must provide a resume, cover letter, and two writing samples that represents their best work. Candidates will not be considered without providing such documents. This position will be located in the Chicago, DC or Philadelphia office, thus there is a strong preference for candidates who are licensed in those jurisdictions or eligible for waivers.
