Pillsbury Winthrop Shaw Pittman issued the following announcement on Aug. 24.
WorldECR magazine has again recognized Pillsbury as a top law firm advising on global export control and sanctions matters in connection with the publication’s 2018 WorldECR Awards. Award honorees were announced in WorldECR’s July 2018 issue, where Pillsbury’s practice is highlighted in three categories for its multidisciplinary capabilities and deep global bench.
This year, International Trade senior associate Benjamin Cote has been “highly commended” in the Young Practitioner of the Year category. The publication notes that clients are “consistently impressed with Ben’s ability to navigate the complex and interconnected regulations applicable to their transactions.” Cote’s practice focuses on advising companies across sectors and around the world on a broad range of global trade matters, including export controls and embargoes, CFIUS reviews, foreign ownership mitigation for Defense Security Service-cleared facilities, the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act, the Foreign Trade Regulations, trade remedy laws, Section 232 investigations and the Lacey Act.
Pillsbury’s London-based International Trade team also achieved a “highly commended” accolade from WorldECR in the Export Controls Law Firm of the Year, Europe category. The publication notes that the firm’s London lawyers, including partner Matthew Oresman and counsel Steven Farmer, draw from their “in-depth knowledge of trade measures” and “nuanced understanding of the related political, policy and diplomatic context” to advise clients across a broad range of industries.
Additionally, WorldECR has recognized Pillsbury’s practice as “highly commended” in the category for Export Controls/Sanctions Law Firm of the Year, Rest of the World. The publication notes the global footprint of the firm’s International Trade practice, which is supported by lawyers based in Japan, Beijing, Hong Kong and Turkey. These lawyers advise clients on local law in these jurisdictions and help them navigate the overlap with U.S. and EU laws.
Nationally ranked by Chambers USA, Pillsbury’s International Trade practice is known for its sophisticated work on export controls and sanctions, CFIUS reviews, international trade agreements and FCPA and customs compliance. Combining their deep experience with global trade regulations with a nuanced comprehension of related political, policy and diplomatic issues, the firm’s lawyers provide clients with the full range of legal services related to regulation of international trade and investment.
