Weil, Gotshal & Manges LLP's two-partner team is engaged in a raft of significant trade matters as a consequence of the firm's vast pipeline of transactional work. 'An expert on foreign investment and sanctions', Washington DC-based team head Ted Posner is regularly engaged on the CFIUS front for the firm's impressive roster of private equity sponsors on their global transactions; he recently acted for Antin Infrastructure Partners on the CFIUS review of its acquisition of FirstLight Fiber from Oak Hill Capital Partners. Posner also 'has a uniquely deep understanding of the intersection of policy, politics and business', traits which are admirably demonstrated in his continued role for Chevron on bilateral investment treaty matters.
