Arcie Jordan is a seasoned, bilingual corporate lawyer, who handles complex international transactional, transportation, trade and immigration matters for U.S. companies expanding abroad, and foreign entities seeking to invest or expand into the U.S. Clients expanding internationally regard Arcie as a trusted advisor who helps them navigate foreign investment restrictions, corporate structuring and formation, corporate governance, permitting and compliance, labor and employment, trade and immigration issues affecting their cross-border acquisitions and divestitures, operations and activities.

For several U.S. clients, Arcie has developed Foreign Corrupt Practices Act compliance policies and conducted FCPA due diligence and training. She has also:

Arcie has developed expatriate and global employment-related policies for the cross-border movement of personnel (among others to Australia, Brazil, China, the Czech Republic, India, Mexico, Norway, Singapore and South Korea). She has also advised clients regarding international supply chain issues (including vendor-managed inventory matters and creation of shipping associations) and helped foreign subsidiaries structure related-party pricing and intercompany agreements.

Foreign clients investing or expanding into the U.S. frequently seek Arcie's experience and counsel in the following areas:

  • Expansion due diligence and structuring analysis.
  • U.S. customs obligations and compliance.
  • Corporate structuring, tax, employment and immigration issues.
  • Transportation regulatory and permitting and international supply chain issues.

Arcie has lived and worked throughout Mexico and several South America countries. She is fluent in Spanish and thoroughly familiar with the nuances and cultural aspects of doing business in Latin American countries.

Search Tips:

You may use the wildcard symbol (*) as a root expander.  A search for "anti*" will find not only "anti", but also "anti-trust", "antique", etc.

Entering two terms together in a search field will behave as though an "OR" is being used.  For example, entering "Antique Motorcars" as a Client Name search will find results with either word in the Client Name.

Operators

AND and OR may be used in a search.  Note: they must be capitalized, e.g., "Project AND Finance." 

The + and - sign operators may be used.  The + sign indicates that the term immediately following is required, while the - sign indicates to omit results that contain that term. E.g., "+real -estate" says results must have "real" but not "estate".

To perform an exact phrase search, surround your search phrase with quotation marks.  For example, "Project Finance".

Searches are not case sensitive.
