The Export Legal Assistance Network

U.S Small Business Administration International Trade Program


A cooperative program among the Federal Bar Association, U.S. Department of Commerce, and U.S. Small Business Administration.


To maximize the value of your one free consultation with a lawyer, you must be well prepared.  ELAN lawyers may refuse to meet with callers who begin their request with a question such as:  “I want to export, can you help me”?  Before contacting an ELAN lawyer, you should have done considerable homework, have a business plan or strategy and have made use of the services of your local USEAC or SBA.  Otherwise, you may be wasting not only the time of our lawyers, but also your own.
