Farhad JalinousWhite & Case LLP

Sophisticated and commercially oriented‘, White & Case LLP‘s geographically diverse international trade practice comes ‘highly recommended for international companies operating on a global basis‘. Indeed, over the past year alone, the team’s extensive cross-border workload saw it collaborate with colleagues across Asia, Europe, Latin America and the Middle East. The group’s practice offering is equally comprehensive and sources highlight it as a ‘full-service international trade practice covering multiple sub-disciplines‘. The firm primarily stands out for its performance on the trade remedy and trade policy front, where global practice chair David Bond (‘flexible, quick, objective‘) and former department head Gregory Spak are key names. The team also houses a premier US national security and foreign direct investment review practice under the leadership of Farhad Jalinous, who is widely considered to rank among the leading CFIUS experts in the market. Nicole Erb co-heads the sanctions and export controls group and recently acted alongside Claire DeLelle to represent state-owned oil and gas company Petróleos de Venezuela in litigation regarding Office of Foreign Assets Control(OFAC)-blocked assets. Other key figures in the Washington DC-based team include sanctions co-head Richard Burke, Cristina Brayton-Lewis, who also focuses on sanctions matters, and senior policy counsel Earl Comstock.
