Defense Against International Drug Trafficking Charges

International trade presents a number of risks for criminal prosecution. Some risks relate to laws specific to the products being imported or exported (for example, drugs, weapons, plant materials).

  • Another area of risk for exposure to criminal charges relates to the manner in which business is conducted, which can result in charges of money laundering, violations of financial regulations regarding the transfer of money across borders, and actions covered under the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act.
