About The Trade Practitioner

The Trade Practitioner is developed and maintained by the Squire Patton Boggs International Trade Practice. We endeavor for this blog to be a resource for current developments in international trade and national security. It provides a wealth of information to help you strengthen organizational trade compliance, gain regulatory understanding and heighten awareness to the impact that national security concerns have on international trade. The blog also tracks important trade policy issues and international trade agreement negotiations. The Topics column on the Home page organizes our blog posts by focus areas, and the sections on CFIUS Resources, Sanctions: Non-US Organizations and Persons and Learning Center are reservoirs of pertinent official government publications and our original contents, including thought leadership, presentations and training materials. Scroll down further on the Home page to Events and Training Opportunities for information on a variety of gatherings that may be of interest to you.
