“No one does a better job than NSSF and the FAIR Trade Group in educating our country’s firearms manufacturers, wholesalers and distributors on the complexities and pitfalls of trade in this highly regulated area,” commented Jeff Beatrice, head of the Firm’s Export Control and Economic Sanctions team based in Washington, D.C. “The panels and presentations always provide the most up-to-date information and trends on essential topics, and the opportunity to engage in dialogue and gain insights from a broad array of government regulators and other officials is a unique and highly beneficial exercise. The Firm has been honored to participate and contribute to the success of the conference in the past and hopes to do so again this year.”
