U.S. Export Control & Compliance: What Canadian Entities Should Know
The ever complex and changing US export control laws require Canadian companies and individuals to keep compliance obligations a topmost priority to reduce the potential risks of liabilities that can arise for export control violations. As US export control enforcement focuses more heavily on individuals, and with export reform placing greater burdens on compliance by persons and entities who receive controlled goods, the potential for Canadian companies and individuals to run afoul of US requirements has increased markedly.
In this two-hour LIVE Webcast, a panel of distinguished professionals and thought leaders assembled by The Knowledge Group will provide the audience with an in-depth discussion of how U.S. Export Controls & Compliance are changing for those outside the US, and will help you understand the important aspects of this significant topic. Speakers will address Export Control Reform (ECR) implementation and challenges, key aspects affecting Canadian companies, and the compliance and enforcement challenges arising from the shifting export control regulations and landscape, and discuss how to keep your compliance up to date in this changing world.
Key topics include:
- Export Control Reform (ECR)

About Eckland & Blando
Eckland & Blando provides experienced, aggressive, and responsive legal services to businesses throughout the United States. Based in the Twin Cities, we are especially committed to meeting the unique needs of contractors that provide goods and services to federal, state, and local government agencies. Our government contracts attorneys have achieved a national reputation in this area.
Our lawyers have more than fifty years of experience counseling and representing individuals, partnerships, corporations, and government entities. We have appeared before state agencies and courts across the country, Federal Boards of Contract Appeals, U.S. District Courts and Courts of Appeal, the U.S. Court of Federal Claims, and the United States Supreme Court.
Our law firm has developed a national reputation for trying cases to win. In 2002, Attorneys Jeff Eckland and Mark Blando presented a pivotal case to the U.S. Supreme Court. The Court held, in a 9-0 decision, that when the Government enters into business deals with the private sector, it must play by the same rules that apply to its citizens. Franconia Associates v. United States, 536 U.S. 129 (2002). At the ensuing trial, the Government was ordered to pay the plaintiffs over $13 million in damages. See id., 61 Fed. Cl. 718 (2004). Subsequent settlements of similar claims across the country have led to additional recoveries well in excess of $300 million.
Because of our experience and dedication to government contracts law, we understand the complex set of laws, regulations, and polices that apply to doing business with the Government. Whether ensuring that a contract award is fair in an agency bid protest, litigating a claim for just payment for a contract change in the federal courts and boards, or establishing important legal principles before the United States Supreme Court, our lawyers are committed to understanding your business and are ready to stand for your rights.
