Jerome J. Zaucha

Jerome Zaucha, a partner in the firm's Washington, D.C. office, concentrates his practice on international trade, representing a wide spectrum of multinational companies based both in and outside the United States.  He has substantial experience in all areas of international trade law, including export controls, customs, and trade remedies and agreements.

Jerome represents clients in every area of export regulation:  export control and trade embargo regulations administered by the Directorate of Defense Trade Controls (DDTC), the Bureau of Industry and Security (BIS), and the Office of Foreign Assets Control (OFAC); the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act (FCPA); Exon-Florio (CFIUS); anti-boycott laws; and various other trade sanction statutes and measures such as Helms-Burton.

Jerome also assists clients in all aspects of U.S. (and certain non-U.S.) customs laws:  classification, appraisement, special and trade agreement tariff regimes, country of origin and origin marking, entry, liquidation and re-liquidation procedures, enforcement of other agency regulations, NAFTA origination and origin rules, Foreign Trade Zones and Sub-zones, and prior disclosures and customs seizures and penalties. 

In addition, Jerome has substantial experience handling “trade remedy” proceedings (e.g., antidumping, countervailing duty, and Sections 201 and 301) and bilateral and multilateral (including NAFTA and WTO) trade agreement matters. 

Jerome has substantial experience assisting clients in every context in which an international trade law issue may arise, including business planning, administrative proceedings, mergers, acquisitions and other business transactions, corporate compliance initiatives, and government investigations and enforcement proceedings.  He routinely works with lawyers in the firm’s public policy and law, corporate, mergers and acquisitions and securities, government contracts and procurement policy, and white collar crime/criminal defense practices to provide coordinated services to clients on trade law matters and other matters with trade law implications.
