Daniel J. Gerkin

Dan represents a diverse array of U.S. and multinational clients in matters relating to U.S. export controls, economic embargoes and sanctions, customs, and trade remedies. He advises on issues involving the transnational flow of goods, software, technology, and services, as well as investments in the United States and abroad, and routinely counsels clients on international trade law matters in connection with mergers and acquisitions and other business transactions.

Dan advises clients regarding compliance with the Export Administration Regulations (“EAR”), including antiboycott compliance, the International Traffic in Arms Regulations ("ITAR"), the embargoes and sanctions programs administered by the Office of Foreign Assets Control, and sanctions-related legislation. He assists clients with the preparation and submission of commodity classification requests, commodity jurisdiction requests, requests for advisory opinions, applications for licenses and other export authorizations, voluntary prior disclosures, and responses to administrative subpoenas, and has created comprehensive export compliance policies and procedures manuals.

Dan also represents U.S. importers before U.S. Customs and Border Protection ("CBP") and the U.S. Court of International Trade in connection with a wide variety of customs matters, including tariff classification, import valuation, country of origin, country of origin marking, preferential programs (e.g., Generalized System of Preferences) and free trade agreements (e.g., North American Free Trade Agreement), drawback, reconciliation, temporary importations under bond, Foreign Trade Zones, and textile quota and visa requirements. He has also represented a wide variety of foreign manufacturers and exporters and U.S. importers in traditional and non-market economy antidumping and countervailing duty proceedings.

Finally, Dan has counselled clients in connection with matters implicating the Committee on Foreign Investment in the United States ("CFIUS"), and has successfully shepherded a number of clients through the CFIUS clearance process.
