How I Lawyer: David J. Ribner - CFIUS and International Trade Compliance

December 28, 2021

O'Melveny counsel David J. Ribner, whose focus is on the Committee on Foreign Investment in the United States (CFIUS) and international trade compliance, was featured on the How I Lawyer podcast with host Professor Jonah Perlin of Georgetown Law School. The two discussed the nature of Ribner's cross-border practice where he counsels clients on regulatory matters regarding national security clearances and compliance with US economic sanctions, export controls, customs laws, and the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act (FCPA). They also discussed how to gain expertise in a technical area of law, working with international clients, and how trying different practice areas is beneficial in the long run. The Legal 500 US recommended Ribner as a leading international trade lawyer and Chambers USA recognized him as an “Up & Coming” CFIUS practitioner.“
