Case Study

The Vogel Group worked with one of the world’s largest factory equipment manufacturers to identify, understand and mitigate risks around international sanctions in regions of the world that posed a national security risk to the United States.

IMPACT

To provide the client with a better understanding of the material risks around their global business operations, the Vogel Group conducted thorough intelligence gathering with government agencies of jurisdiction. As a next step, our team provided a comprehensive report outlining past, current and prospective policies that would adversely affect contracts within countries of risk. To help the company manage the threat of potential international sanctions in countries where they had operations, the Vogel Group coordinated a messaging campaign with government officials to clarify the scope of its work in those parts of the world. As a result of that government relations effort, the State Department and other trade associations were better able to understand and craft future public policy that would not severely impact or economically harm the company. By understanding the full scope of the threat and directly engaging with the government to address those matters, our client could better manage their international contracting.
