FFL License, NFA / SOT and Import / Export

Operating a business in the firearms industry begins with a Federal Firearms License (or an “FFL”). Our expert attorneys can provide FFL license and Legal Services to get you started. Beyond the FFL, we assist firearm licensees with their broader NFA / SOT and Import / Export licensing needs. FFL Law can guide businesses through the process of obtaining FFL licenses to begin firearm operations, and subsequent licenses and permits necessary to expand their manufacturing operations or sales reach.

Legal ATF Inspection Support for FFL Licensees

FFL License operations include A&D Books, NFA Forms, Forms 4473, import and export paperwork, and many other records and business actions; each presents dozens of opportunities for misunderstanding, mistakes, and, ultimately, citation. FFL Law can educate businesses where they stand with respect to ATF’s requirements, present a picture of risk and educate the industry on how to reduce that risk, all under the protection of attorney-client privilege.
