Eversheds Sutherland has hired Ginger Faulk as a partner in its US international trade team.
Based in Washington DC, Faulk will be part of the law firm’s energy and infrastructure practice. She joins from Baker Botts, where she worked for nearly 15 years, most recently as a partner.
Faulk represents multinational companies in matters involving US government regulation of foreign trade and investment, helping clients to manage and address compliance and enforcement risks. She has extensive experience in a range of sectors, including energy, defence, aerospace, telecommunication, software and other high-tech industries, counselling clients on transactional matters, compliance, licensing, investigations and enforcement actions.
This involves representing clients before the Office of Foreign Assets Control, US Bureau of Industry and Security, Directorate of Defence Trade Controls, US Customs and Border Protection and the Committee on Foreign Investment in the United States.
“Ginger is an accomplished international trade attorney and we are delighted by her arrival to our team,” says Herbert J Short Jr, partner and co-head of global energy and infrastructure. “As regulations of foreign investment and international trade matters continue to rise and take centre stage, Ginger’s addition will be of great value to our international clients.”
