Lindsey Ricchi’s practice focuses on a broad range of trade controls matters, including compliance with sanctions administered by the US Department of the Treasury’s Office of Foreign Assets Control (OFAC) and export controls administered by the US Department of Commerce’s Bureau of Industry and Security (BIS). She frequently advocates on behalf of clients related to license applications, voluntary self-disclosures, responses to subpoenas and requests for information.

Prior to joining the firm, Ms. Ricchi was a managing associate at another international law firm, where she counseled clients regarding sanctions, export controls, and in anti-dumping and countervailing duty proceedings. While in law school, she interned at the US Department of State’s Bureau of Arms Control, Deterrence, and Stability (formerly, Arms Controls, Verification and Compliance), where she researched and analyzed the long-term effectiveness of arms control treaties.
