Technical Data & Software Controls

The handling of technical data is one of most challenging areas in complying with U.S. export control laws. With extensive experience in private practice and government, Stagg P.C. advises clients on the classification, handling, management, and storage of technical data and software that is controlled by the International Traffic in Arms Regulations (ITAR) and Export Administration Regulations (EAR). Technical data and software controls are an increasingly complex era due to issues involving cloud computing, employee access to data, and the limits on who may receive such data.

Our unique value. Stagg P.C. offers clients unique value into U.S. export controls laws. The firm's lawyers and advisors have former government experience at the Directorate of Defense Trade Controls within the U.S. Department of State. This experience involved administering and enforcing export control laws, as well as re-writing key aspects of the ITAR, EAR and control lists under the ongoing Export Control Reform initiative.

  > Providing internal jurisdiction and classification assessments, as well as commodity jurisdiction rulings
  > Seeking advisory opinions on proposed courses of action or regulatory interpretations
