    Berne Kluber understands international transactions, the upstream exploration and production business, and technology. Prior to becoming a lawyer, he was a systems analyst specializing in upstream systems for a major international E&P company. Berne’s practice focuses on the day-to-day contracts used in international business, such as distributor agreements, sales representative agreements, purchase and supply agreements and responses to international bid tenders. In the E&P space, drafting onshore and offshore drilling contracts, acquiring seismic data, entering into global master services agreements, and implementing the latest hardware/software applications all fall within his area.

    Because of Berne’s focus on international transactions, he routinely counsels clients regarding compliance with international trade laws and regulations, such as the Export Administration Regulations (EAR), the International Traffic in Arms Regulations (ITAR), U.S. economic sanctions regulations, trade embargos, customs laws, and anti-corruption laws (e.g., the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act (FCPA) and the UK Bribery Act of 2010). He also works with the Firm’s White Collar Practice to conduct internal investigations and respond to government inquiries.
