Jason Prince represents and counsels exporters and multinational companies – including one of the world’s 10 largest international defense trade companies – on an array of complex international trade compliance matters.
Jason serves as Co-Lead of the firm’s Commercial Aerospace & Defense Industry Group, and he has helped aerospace and defense, energy, mining, technology, semiconductor, telecommunications, agribusiness and food, retail, financial services, and other companies to navigate various complicated US regulatory regimes applicable to international business.
Jason specializes in coordinating internal investigations, preparing and filing voluntary disclosures, and conducting compliance program reviews involving the International Traffic in Arms Regulations (ITAR), the Export Administration Regulations (EAR), the Office of Foreign Assets Control’s (OFAC) trade sanctions regulations, and the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act (FCPA). Additionally, he has expertise with helping companies to develop policies and procedures, due diligence protocols, and training programs aimed at minimizing ITAR, EAR, OFAC, and FCPA compliance risks, especially in relation to the use of third-party agents to conduct business abroad. In the export controls arena, he has experience with obtaining export and technology transfer authorizations, and conducting product classification and commodity jurisdiction analyses.
Jason previously served as Deputy Press Secretary to Nobuteru Ishihara, Japan’s immediate-past Economy Minister, and he also attended the Japanese Government’s 23rd Asian Export Control Seminar as an invited observer in February 2016. Following the Seminar, the Center for Information Security Trade Controls (‘CISTEC’), a Japanese quasi-governmental organization that serves as a bridge between Japan’s government and industry in the area of export controls, posted to its English homepage Jason’s co-authored article about Japan’s export controls regime.
