Hogan Lovells US LLP displays unparalleled experience in export controls and sanctions enforcement; the past year was no exception, with a team led by Stephen Propst, practice co-head Beth Peters and Ajay Kuntamukkala continuing to act for Chinese telecom company ZTE on global compliance issues relating to the client’s high-profile settlement agreements concluded with the US Department of Commerce (DOC). The practice also demonstrated an enviable strength in compliance in the technology sector, where it assisted Facebook with its investment in Jio Platforms, which is considered the largest foreign direct investment in India’s tech sector to date. In addition, the team is also handling a large volume of mandates in the life sciences, defense, aerospace, nuclear, and agriculture sectors, for which it regularly draws on the expertise of the firm’s well-known industry sector groups. For larger matters requiring advanced planning, clients also benefit from the department’s close collaboration with the firm’s dedicated legal project management team. Department co-head Deen Kaplan is highly regarded in the agricultural industry, where he has represented both traders and producers in multiple disputes, as well as antidumping and countervailing duty investigations. Similarly, trade litigation and high-stakes trade negotiations are core areas of focus for Jonathan Stoel and recently promoted partner Jared Wessel. For mandates involving the Committee on Foreign Investment in the United States (CFIUS), clients turn to Anne Salladin and Brian Curran, who also has expertise in divestiture trusts. The group continued its expansion streak in the spring of 2020, significantly broadening its trade policy offering with the hire of Kelly Ann Shaw from the White House, where she served as Deputy Assistant to the President for International Economic Affairs.
