Latham & Watkins LLP's eight-partner Washington DC-based team provides 'succinct analysis and guidance on how best to resolve trade issues', primarily with regard to export controls and sanctions matters, from both a compliance and enforcement perspective. Its clients include many global corporates in highly regulated sectors, including life sciences and financial services. The 'customer-oriented and responsive' Les Carnegie and William McGlone have 'significant knowledge of the regulations, as well as strong ties with the regulators'. In addition to standalone mandates, the team also picks up a huge amount of work by virtue of the firm's vast deal engine, in terms of both ad-hoc evaluation of compliance risk and CFIUS advice on M&A. Carnegie and Edward Shapiro are involved in the most significant CFIUS work handled by the team, on behalf of US target businesses and overseas acquirers (where it is well positioned as a result of its vast international network of offices). Shapiro recently acted for US-based energy exploration company Armstrong Energy in connection with the $400m sale of its Alaska North Slope Assets business to New Zealand-based energy firm, Oil Search. Eric Volkman is recommended for the investigations and enforcement side of export controls and trade sanctions cases.
