2-Export Legal AssistanceExport Legal Assistance
If you are a first time exporter, consider contacting the Export Legal Assistance Network (ELAN).
ELAN connects volunteer lawyers with new-to-export companies and provides them with an initial legal consultation free of charge.
ELAN has regional coordinators throughout the United States.
What are the services that an ELAN lawyer will provide?
ELAN lawyers will help you identify the key legal issues facing your company in exporting. They will explain basic contractual requirements, taxes and regulations and give you introductory information on other necessary resources, such as banks, freight forwarders, insurance companies, and state and federal programs to expand exports.
This free consultation is meant to provide a reasonably detailed overview of the legal issues involved in exporting. You are then free to handle the next steps yourself, or hire an attorney to complete them.
