Baker McKenzie’s Global Supply Chain Compliance Blog recently published the post “President Biden Signs Executive Order to Review and Strengthen US Supply Chains.” The new blog, authored by Kerry Contini and Daniel Andreeff, is posted here. The blog examines President Biden’s recent executive order requiring federal agencies to review risks in key US supply chains and provide policy recommendations to make them more resilient, diverse, and secure. The review of US supply chains are likely to result in legal and regulatory changes. The executive order directs the agencies to consult with outside stakeholders, including industry, which may provide companies with an opportunity to get involved and advocate for certain policy proposals.
Ms. Contini focuses her practice on export controls, trade sanctions, and anti-boycott laws. This includes advising US and multinational companies on trade compliance programs, risk assessments, licensing, review of proposed transactions and enforcement matters. Ms. Contini works regularly with companies across a wide range of industries, including the pharmaceutical/medical device, oil and gas, and nuclear sectors.
Daniel Andreeff’s practice focuses on US economic and trade sanctions, including those targeting Iran, Russia, Cuba, Syria, and North Korea, export controls, and anti-boycott laws. He represents clients in national security reviews before the Committee on Foreign Investment in the United States (CFIUS), and has experience in federal court litigation and congressional investigations. His pro bono practice includes providing sanctions and export control advice to a global humanitarian NGO. * Admitted in New York only.
