Cad Mille Failte. A hundred thousand welcomes to the Kaufman & Canoles International Business Law Blog! With the able assistance of my colleagues, Elaina L. Blanks and R. Ellen Coley, we will strive to bring current, useful legal information to the aid of businesses and individuals involved in importing and exporting goods, services, technology and capital. Ellen's postings will initially focus on U.S. Customs and export-control issues and Elaina's on international tax planning. Reflecting my background as a business lawyer, my postings will cover a host of international commercial law topics, including international sales contracts; international distribution and agency agreements; international payment mechanisms; U.S. export licensing requirements; international joint ventures; The U.S. Foreign Corrupt Practices Act and Anti-Boycott Regulations; and international dispute resolution. We will welcome your questions and feedback as we all strive to improve our command of the challenging issues confronting companies that have entered the international marketplace for products, services, technology and capital.
