Awards & rankings | 11 November 2019

Washington, D.C., 11 November 2019 – Global Investigations Review (GIR) has named Beth Peters to its list of the 25 most respected sanctions attorneys in D.C.

In its article titled "The DC sanctions lawyers to have on speed dial," GIR said Peters, the co-director of the firm's International Trade and Investment practice, "is widely respected within Washington" and noted her recent work on several high-profile sanctions matters.

To compile its list, GIR said it spent months asking practitioners which individual lawyers they would trust to represent them in a hypothetical sanctions case, and also reviewed publicly available information to determine who is working on the most significant matters. GIR limited its selection of 25 lawyers to one honoree per firm.

The firm's International Trade and Investment practice comprises a global team of internationally recognized lawyers who regularly work on complex and high-profile matters including export control issues, sanctions regimes and compliance, major trade policy matters, investigations by the Committee on Foreign Investment in the U.S., trade remedy litigation, NAFTA and WTO disputes, and customs matters. This year, Chambers named Hogan Lovells its 2019 "International Trade Law Firm of the Year."

With almost 30 years of experience advising clients on a full range of complex international trade compliance and investigation matters regarding the export control, cybersecurity, national security, sanctions, customs, anti-boycott, and anti-money laundering/USA Patriot Act regulations, Peters has been recognized by several other directories such as Chambers, World ECR, and by Legal 500 in its Hall of Fame.

As Chambers USA notes, "Beth Peters has 'an encyclopedic knowledge of U.S. laws and excellent experience of their application outside the USA' and 'clients recommend her as a highly skilled and efficient practitioner.'"
