OVERVIEW

Theresa Youngblood has significant international trade compliance and regulatory law experience and advises domestic and international entities in the public and private sectors on building successful strategies and on dispute resolution. She offers her clients the right mix of dedicated and driven, smart and savvy, and knowledgeable and approachable – gained over the course of the last 20 years.

She has extensive experience in providing tailored counsel for matters involving export control and compliance, particularly with regard to the Export Administration Regulations (EAR), the International Traffic in Arms Regulations (ITAR), Customs and Border Protection regulations, and Office of Foreign Assets Control (OFAC) sanctions regulations. Theresa also guides clients through U.S. Department of Defense (DOD) regulations, in particular as export and import regulations impact her client’s the Foreign Military Sales contracts. 

Theresa advises clients on these complex compliance issues and creates and launches internal compliance programs tailored to entities large, medium and small. She works with and on behalf of her clients regarding virtually all aspects of export and import transactions, including all affected corporate functions, to address transactional, operational, policy and compliance considerations. She is intimately aware of the issues affecting clients in the areas of export-import control, licensing compliance, commodity jurisdiction and classification determinations; reporting and compliance requirements for licenses, agreements and exemptions and exceptions; coordination with forwarders, brokers, agents, and third parties; and drafting and filing necessary documentation for tangible and intangible shipments and transfers.

Additionally, Theresa is well-versed across the international trade spectrum and handles internal and external audit activities. She briefs and advises senior leadership on metrics as to various trade control matters touching all business operations, from executive management and business development to engineering, research and development, finance, supply chain and procurement, and information technology.

Further, Theresa develops and implements tailored export-import compliance programs, develops and presents training material, as well as processes and procedures, including export-import manuals, work instructions, international routing guides, screening procedures, and more. She also ensures that necessary agreements and contracts terms and conditions adequately address trade controls requirements to best mitigate risk.

She also assists on monitorships and is a member of the core team assisting the Special Compliance Coordinator appointed by the U.S. Department of Commerce to monitor, assess and report on the U.S. export control compliance of Zhongxing Telecommunications Equipment Corporation, of Shenzhen, China, and ZTE Kangxun Telecommunications Ltd. of Hi-New Shenzhen, China (collectively, ZTE).

Prior to joining the firm, Theresa was a senior manager in the defense and technology space; a director of strategic trade compliance and a manager of foreign disclosure and licensing and exports with two global commercial semiconductor and defense aviation industry entities; and has previously been in private practice within the international trade and legislative affairs groups. 

Early in her career, Theresa was the confidential assistant to the former Under Secretary for Export Administration William A. Reinsch in the U.S. Department of Commerce and a legislative assistant to former U.S. Rep. Michael A. Andrews.

Theresa enjoys traveling overseas and has lived and worked in Tokyo and Osaka, Japan.

Theresa is not permitted to practice in the local courts of Texas.
