Scarlott brings 25 years of highly specialized experience  as co-leader of the firm’s International Trade team

International trade attorney Kerry Scarlott has joined BakerHostetler as a partner and co-leader of the International Trade team, resident in the Washington office. He comes to the firm from Goulston & Storrs.

With decades of international trade experience, including a term as a corporate attorney, Scarlott utilizes his deep experience to advise a wide range of key industry national and multinational companies in cross-border transactions, with specialized emphasis in aerospace, defense and satellite technologies; optics, photonics and electronics; and manufacturers of autonomous unmanned vehicles (AUVs). He counsels clients through the details of international trade regulatory compliance, including obtaining licenses and approvals to comply with the International Traffic in Arms Regulations (ITAR), Export Administrations Regulations (EAR), Foreign Corrupt Practices Act (FCPA), National Industrial Security Program Operating Manual (NISPOM), and embargo and sanction programs administered by the Treasury Department’s Office of Foreign Assets Control (OFAC). He also assists both domestic and foreign clients in navigating the Committee on Foreign Investment in the U.S. (CFIUS), which is charged with reviewing potential foreign investments in U.S. companies for national security implications. Scarlott is adept at working with a variety of government agencies, including the U.S. departments of State, Defense, Commerce and Treasury; the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA); and the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA).

Scarlott counsels companies and research institutions, including universities, on the development and implementation of enhanced export compliance programs, including establishing compliance policies and training programs. He also works with merger and acquisition teams to conduct self-assessments, internal investigations and voluntary disclosures of noncompliance. If the need arises, Scarlott advises clients in government audits, investigations and enforcement proceedings.

“Kerry is highly specialized in navigating the rigors of international trade compliance for companies in the U.S. and abroad,” said Ray Whitman, Litigation Group Chair. “He understands the importance of devising novel solutions to complex situations. These skills, coupled with Kerry’s solid working relationships with regulators, will be a great resource to the firm’s clients.”

“Kerry is one of those outstanding leaders who will continuously help our clients push the innovation ceiling, continuously help our clients develop brighter visions and strategies for the future,” said Jeffrey Paravano, Managing Partner of the Washington office. “Kerry brings the energy, skill and excitement to the leadership of our international trade practice that will help our clients succeed in an ever-changing global economy.”

“The depth of BakerHostetler’s practice in international trade regulation dovetails precisely with my skill set,” said Scarlott. “This, combined with the firm’s national footprint, will give my clients greater access to important services that will help them to continue to grow their businesses on the international stage.”

Scarlott is a frequent presenter and writer on various topics related to international trade matters. He received his J.D. from the University of Pittsburgh School of Law, where he was executive editor of the law review, along with his M.P.P., with honors, from the University of Pittsburgh Graduate School of Public and International Affairs in 1994. Scarlott earned his B.S. from St. Lawrence University in 1986.
