CFIUS Proposed Regulations – Evolution Toward Broad Foreign Investment Screening Continues Apace
Economist/Compliance SpecialistWashington, D.C.
Greg Hume, an economist based in the Washington, D.C., office, supports our International Trade & Compliance Practice.
Greg assists in a variety of regulatory and investigatory activities relating to the Committee for Foreign Investment in the United States (CFIUS), export controls, economic sanctions and anti-boycott regulations, including the preparation of CFIUS Notices, voluntary disclosures, internal audit documentation and compliance policies and procedures. He also actively participates in corporate transaction due diligence related to Trade Controls and the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act, as well as internal investigatory activities.
With over 20 years' experience in antidumping and countervailing duty investigations (and consequent administrative reviews) of unfairly-traded goods, Greg has been centrally involved in the statistical, economic and financial analysis of the confidential pricing, logistical, marketing and accounting information submitted by parties in such cases, as well as supporting the drafting and review of briefs and other pleadings filed by parties in the cases. Among the unfair trade cases in which he has participated are those involving crystalline solar voltaic panels, softwood lumber, warmwater shrimp, wooden bedroom furniture, outboard motors and various flat-rolled steel products.
Greg has frequently presented litigation-related testimony before the International Trade Administration and actively participates in representing firm clients before the U.S. Department of Commerce, the International Trade Commission, the Court of International Trade, the Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit and the World Trade Organization.
Greg actively participated in the negotiation of a major international trade agreement involving billions of dollars of trade, and the subsequent monitoring of that agreement. In binding arbitration emerging from that agreement, he developed a damages estimate adopted by the U.S. Government and accepted by the arbitral panel.
Greg also supports a variety of litigation efforts requiring data analysis, and has developed and analyzed damages estimates for various arbitration and litigation matters.
