Export controls is an intimidating area, especially as the methods and rules have changed since Export Control Reform. We demystify the rules and procedures with our expert staff of former senior government regulators who were lead architects of the revised regulations and who have since advised hundreds of companies, universities, and other organizations.


The added value of Goforth Trade Advisors has helped our clients with practical solutions to complex problems:

Our deep knowledge and unique insight of the new regulations by those who wrote them.
Validate new or existing compliance programs by incorporating the regulator's perspective and key risks.
Develop classification and licensing strategies with the former licensing and commodity jurisdiction directors.
Strategic advice on disclosures, advisory opinions, regulatory changes, and government relations.
