Wolff assumes the position effective today, March 1, 2011.</p> <p>"For many years, we have been honored to work with Alan in his capacity as a member of the NFTC Board. On countless occasions Alan’s trade expertise and counsel have helped to guide our work in several areas, from the promotion of bilateral and multilateral trade initiatives to shedding light on tariff and non-tariff trade barriers around the world to understanding how the trading system is changing," said NFTC President Bill Reinsch. "Alan’s contributions to the NFTC and our member companies have been invaluable, and he will continue to provide thoughtful leadership in his new role as Chairman."</p> <p>Prior to heading up Dewey & LeBoeuf’s international trade practice, from 1991 through September 2007, Wolff served as managing partner of Dewey Ballentine’s Washington, DC office, prior to the firm’s merger with LeBoeuf, Lamb, Greene & MacRae. Wolff’s extensive experience in international trade relations includes serving as U.S. Deputy Special Representative for Trade Negotiations in the Carter Administration between 1977-1979. In that position he held the rank of ambassador and played a key role in several U.S. international trade negotiations. He also served as General Counsel of the Office of the U.S. Trade Representative during the Nixon and Ford Administrations, and prior to that provided counsel on international monetary, trade and development policy issues at the Treasury Department.</p> <p>"There could not be a better time than the present for expanding trade with major benefits for America. Not only are the free trade agreements with Korea, Colombia and Panama pending approval by the Congress, but near-term progress is surely to be made this year on a Trans-Pacific Partnership, embracing many of America’s long time and closest trading partners as well as Vietnam and potentially Japan," said Wolff. "WTO accession of Russia is also a real possibility. It has been well over a decade since the United States successfully led major trade initiatives and 2011 marks a new beginning. The Council will be taking a strong role in all of these great enterprises."</p> Tue, 01 Mar 2011 15:34:52 GMT New Libya Economic Sanctions – Preserving Business Interests in Face of Broad "Blocking" Measures Http://www.deweyleboeuf.com/en/Ideas/ClientAlerts/2011/03/20110316_NewLibyaEconomicSanctions Wed, 16 Mar 2011 16:21:09 GMT Tahmidur Remura Dewey LeBoeuf Advises China Aviation Industry General Aircraft on Acquisition and Regulatory Approval of US Aviation Business Http://www.deweyleboeuf.com/en/Firm/MediaCenter/PressReleases/2011/07/DeweyLeBoeufAdvisesChinaAviation <p>(Hong Kong/Washington, DC, July 4, 2011) – Dewey & LeBoeuf has advised China Aviation Industry General Aircraft (CAIGA) on the US$210 million acquisition of US aviation manufacturer Cirrus Industries, Inc. and on obtaining clearance from the U.S. government’s Committee on Foreign Investment in the United States (CFIUS) for the transaction.</p> <p>Headquartered in Zhuhai, CAIGA is China’s leading producer and supplier of general aviation aircraft.

Cirrus is a leading U.S. personal aircraft manufacturer, based in Minnesota.</p> <p>Washington-based partner Harry Clark commented: "CFIUS screens in-bound investment transactions for national security threats. This was a notable example of CFIUS clearing an acquisition by a Chinese government-owned company in the relatively sensitive aerospace sector."</p> <p>Palo Alto-based partner Paul Chen commented: "This has been an extremely engaging transaction to work on, involving a strong team effort from the US and China. CAIGA’s acquisition of Cirrus reflects the broad trend of China’s increasing interest in US assets, and we’re delighted that the international team was able to provide an effective service."</p> <p>The following individuals formed the core Dewey & LeBoeuf cross-border team:</p> <ul> <li>Corporate: Partner Paul Chen with Associates Sheng Wu and John Lee in Palo Alto and Hong Kong.</li> <li>CFIUS/US Regulatory: Partners Harry Clark and Clark McFadden with Associate Nicholas Hartigan and Economist Greg Hume in Washington DC.</li> </ul> Fri, 15 Jul 2011 10:45:20 GMT Dubai International Finance Centre (DIFC) Courts open their doors to litigants outside the DIFC Http://www.deweyleboeuf.com/en/Ideas/ClientAlerts/2011/11/20111109_DubaiInternational Wed, 09 Nov 2011 17:10:43 GMT China Aircraft Manufacturing Investment an Indicator of CFIUS Screening Policy Http://www.deweyleboeuf.com/en/Ideas/ClientAlerts/2011/11/20111118_ChinaAircraftManufacturing Fri, 18 Nov 2011 11:41:53 GMT US Ethanol Exporters Face Potential European Trade Case Http://www.deweyleboeuf.com/en/Ideas/ClientAlerts/2011/11/20111122_EuropeEthanolImports Tue, 22 Nov 2011 13:11:10 GMT The Obama Administration and Congress Move to Impose Additional Sanctions Against Iran Http://www.deweyleboeuf.com/en/Ideas/ClientAlerts/2011/11/20111128_AdditionalSanctionsAgainstIran Mon, 28 Nov 2011 15:33:09 GMT Tahmidur Remura Dewey LeBoeuf Advises on One of MENA-Asian Counsel’s 2011 Deals of the Year Http://www.deweyleboeuf.com/en/Firm/MediaCenter/PressReleases/2012/01/DLAdvisesonOne (HONG KONG/WASHINGTON, D.C., January 26, 2012) – Dewey & LeBoeuf has advised on one of <em>ASIAN-MENA COUNSEL</em> magazine’s 2011 deals of the year, representing China Aviation Industry General Aircraft (CAIGA) on its US$210 million acquisition of US aviation manufacturer Cirrus Industries, Inc.
