Licensing (FFL, SOT, Import / Export)
There are a multitude of licenses required to enter and subsequently operate within the industry. Orchid Law can guide businesses through the process to obtain their licenses to begin operations and subsequent licenses and permits necessary to expand their manufacturing operations or sales reach.
A&D Books, NFA Forms, Forms 4473, import and export paperwork, and many other records and business actions; each present dozens of opportunities for misunderstanding, mistakes, and ultimately, citation. Orchid Law can educate businesses where they stand with respect to ATF’s requirements, present a picture of risk and educate the business on how to reduce that risk, all under the protection of attorney-client privilege when permissible.
POS, eBound Book and e4473 Services
Gun stores across the United States are quickly moving to new Point of Sales (POS) systems to better manage inventory. In our industry, that drives an increased focus on eBound Book and e4473 technology, eStorage technology and the evaluation of licenses and data during system moves. Our attorneys regularly help retailers apply for ATF variances, permitting use of such technology.
Commercial Matters Including eCommerce
You may be starting a new company and need to create your standard documents. Perhaps your company is presented with a complex transaction which requires the services of an attorney. Maybe you have not reviewed your sales or purchase terms since they have been created and they have not evolved with the law (which is always moving; something those in the firearms industry are familiar with!). Orchid Law can provide transactional services whether traditional or non – traditional (e.g., eCommerce).
Corporate Compliance and Due Diligence
In today’s regulatory environment, companies in every industry must ensure they meet certain standards for compliance with myriad regulatory regimes and implement best practices to achieve compliance. Whether you desire to conduct an internal compliance audit or are undergoing a merger or acquisition, Orchid Law can investigate and present executive leadership with a risk – based assessment of your company’s corporate compliance program.
