Eric S. VolkmanLatham & Watkins LLP

Fielding a ‘well-rounded team of diverse experience and expertise‘, Latham & Watkins LLP‘s international trade practice is particularly noted for providing ‘excellent counsel on matters related to US sanctions and export controls‘. The group is also well-equipped to advise its portfolio of corporate, financial, private equity and non-profit clients on CFIUS and national security matters. Department co-chair Les P. Carnegie (‘very well-connected with US government personnel‘) is one of the most high-profile figures in the market for sanctions, export controls and national security issues; he is particularly well versed in matters relating to aerospace & defense, life sciences, energy, financial institutions and humanitarian organizations. Eric S. Volkman, who co-leads the economic sanctions, export controls and customs practice together with Carnegie, specializes in representing clients in internal corporate investigations and white-collar criminal matters, with an emphasis on trade and economic sanctions and anti-money laundering. Damara Chambers, who recently joined from Vinson & Elkins LLP to co-head the CFIUS & US national security practice alongside Carnegie, advises foreign and domestic clients on US national security issues. The Washington DC-based group also benefits from a talented band of younger lawyers including counsel Andrew Galdes (‘willing to consider new points of view‘), associate Zach Eddington (‘becoming a key leader‘) and Allison Hugi (‘a superb associate‘). Steven Croley left to become General Counsel at Ford.
