Mayer Brown‘s team, which leverages the firm’s presence in London, Hong Kong and São Paulo, is co-led by Greg Deis and William Michael in Chicago, Kelly Kramer in Washington DC and Daniel Stein in New York. The group expanded in 2018, adding Audrey Harris in Washington DC, who joined from an in-house position with BHP Billiton and, in New York, Glen Kopp, who was hired from Bracewell LLP. Kramer is representing Fadi Nahas, former senior vice president of Anham, in a DOJ qui tam action alleging fraudulent inducements of the US Government to award defense contracts and the shipping of critical goods through Iran; the action was stayed pending the outcome of a parallel criminal investigation. Washington DC’s Laurence Urgenson is representing Las Vegas Sands in connection with an FCPA investigation involving allegations from a former executive relating to conduct in Macau.
