Significant business opportunities in emerging markets have attracted much attention of late. The U.S. Government is not the only country to tout the benefits of exports and these markets are attractive with growing middle classes. Yet trading with and investing in such regions of the world can entail substantial business and compliance risks. Companies serious about doing business in these countries should conduct due diligence and be cognizant of U.S. legal requirements, such as the U.S. Foreign Corrupt Practices Act, export control laws and sanctions regimes as well as other countries’ anti-corruption laws. The Suarez Firm assist clients in addressing these issues.
