With Bruce Leeds & Devin Sefton of Braumiller Law Group

  • End of special Hong Kong status
  • Obtaining licenses for exports to China
  • Increased use of the Entity List
  • Huawei restrictions and sanctions
  • Military End User List
  • Military end user/military end use due diligence

 

Navigating these restrictions may be a challenge – let Devin Sefton and Bruce Leeds from Braumiller Law Group help you understand the obstacles along the way.
