Anchored from Washington DC, but with the ability to draw upon key practitioners in Europe and Asia, Kirkland & Ellis LLP's international trade and national security practice provides a 'holistic and integrated service' across a range of non-contentious trade issues. Spearheaded by the 'excellent' Mario Mancuso, the team picks up a significant amount of CFIUS work both in a freestanding capacity and by virtue of its huge volume of transactional work for its roster of private equity sponsors. Mancuso recently advised Brookfield Infrastructure on the $1.1bn acquisition of a US data center portfolio from AT&T Corporation. The team also provides strategic compliance advice across anti-corruption, sanctions and export control matters. Sanjay Mullick is also a key member of the team, which was strengthened by the recent recruitment of Anthony Rapa and of counsel Abigail Cotterill, from Steptoe & Johnson LLP and Miller & Chevalier Chartered respectively.
