Jason Prince represents and counsels exporters and multinational companies – from one of the world’s 10 largest international defense trade companies to a Fortune 100 heavy equipment manufacturer to multiple emerging growth counter-drone companies – on an array of complex international trade compliance matters.
Serving as Co-Chair of the firm’s nationally recognized Export Control & Trade Sanctions Practice Group and Co-Leader of the firm’s Commercial Aerospace & Defense Industry Group, Jason has helped aerospace and defense, technology, semiconductor, telecommunications, energy, financial services, and other companies to navigate various complicated U.S. regulatory regimes applicable to international business. He is currently a Vice Chair of the American Bar Association’s Export Controls/Economic Sanctions Committee.
Jason specializes in coordinating internal investigations, preparing voluntary disclosures to the U.S. Government, and conducting compliance program reviews involving the Arms Export Control Act (AECA)/International Traffic in Arms Regulations (ITAR), the Export Control Reform Act (ECRA)/Export Administration Regulations (EAR), the Office of Foreign Assets Control’s (OFAC) sanctions regulations, the National Nuclear Security Administration’s (NNSA) export controls (Part 810), 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 such compliance risks, especially in relation to the use of third-party agents to conduct business abroad.
Jason previously served as Deputy Press Secretary to Nobuteru Ishihara, Japan’s former 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 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.
