In addition, Nick has extensive experience advising on a broad range of compliance, transactional, and investigatory matters involving: U.S. and international economic sanctions (including in particular those administered by the U.S. Department of the Treasury Office of Foreign Assets Control (OFAC), and the U.S. Departments of State and Commerce); forced labor and supply chain issues; national security risks posed by contemplated foreign investment into the U.S. (including in particular advising on and managing filings with the Committee on Foreign Investment in the United States (CFIUS)); the U.S. Foreign Corrupt Practices Act (FCPA) and other anti-bribery/corruption issues in transactions and on a stand-alone basis; anti-boycott rules; and export controls.
