Notable Representations, Key Contacts
Our team works collaboratively with the M&A and Private Equity teams on the structuring and negotiation of transactions in an effort to anticipate and address regulatory concerns in the earliest stages of transaction planning. Given our broad-based experience, we are able to help clients proactively identify, understand and resolve CFIUS issues, often during strategic corporate development planning. Our experience across business sectors helps our clients address potential national security concerns well before any engagement with CFIUS occurs.
Our FIT team also provides comprehensive strategic counseling related to a wide variety of international trade matters, including: transactional due diligence and compliance with sanctions administered by the Office of Foreign Assets Control (OFAC); export controls administered by the Bureau of Industry and Security (BIS) and Directorate of Defense Trade Controls (DDTC); import/customs; the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act (FCPA); and other anti-bribery and anti-corruption laws, anti-money laundering laws, anti-boycott laws and other international trade and investment matters.
The FIT team has deep experience in numerous industry sectors, including technology, telecommunications, energy, real estate, financial services, health care and pharma, manufacturing, transportation, infrastructure and consumer goods.
