United States: Dispute resolution

International trade

Within: International trade

Led from Washington DC by the 'knowledgeable and experienced' Beth Peters and the 'insightful and strategic' Deen Kaplan, Hogan Lovells US LLP's 'well-rounded' international trade practice has the critical mass and expertise to provide a 'deep and broad offering' to an eclectic mix of clients, including sovereign /provincial governments (such as the Ontario government), global corporates (such as Pfizer, Lockheed Martin and Toyota) and trade bodies (such as National Sorghum Producers). Alongside Stephen Propst, as well as lawyers from the corporate, white-collar and government relations teams, Peters has been central to the firm's high-profile sanctions representation of Chinese multinational telecoms company, ZTE; this work has included advising on its settlement agreement obligations with the US government, and on export enforcement matters, including audits by an independent monitor. The firm has also had a lead role for clients seeking to negotiate and push back against the Trump administration's protectionist policies. As an example, Jonathan Stoel represented Canadian Solar in its challenge to the 'safeguard' action against US imports of solar products. The 'exceptional' Kaplan has represented The US Grains Council in numerous disputes adverse to China, including in a Ministry of Commerce of the People's Republic of China (MOFCOM) initiated case involving US sorghum. Brian Curran has 'very deep knowledge of trade controls', which extends to Committee on Foreign Investment in the United States (CFIUS) reviews for clients in the defense, telecoms and energy sectors. Implementing a creative solution which placed the acquired company's US subsidiaries in a US trust, Curran recently secured CFIUS clearance for German corporate Biotest Pharmaceuticals for its sale to Chinese company CREAT. Other recommended partners include 'outstanding' export controls and sanctions expert Aleksandar Dukic; Warren Maruyama, who excels at trade policy issues; trade remedies expert Craig Lewis; and Anthony Copobianco, who is well versed across all regulatory matters under the International Traffic in Arms Regulations (ITAR).
