Chicago counsel Joan Koenig was quoted in a Law360 article titled, “Intevac Deal Offers A Warning On ‘Deemed Export’ Rules.”

The article discusses the U.S. Department of Commerce’s settlement with Intevac Inc., which was accused of improperly releasing controlled technology information to a Russian employee.  The settlement highlights the need for companies to consider so-called deemed export rules when they have foreign nationals on the payroll.
