Reid Whitten Named a Top Advisor 2021 by Foreign Investment Watch
Partner and leader of the firm’s CFIUS Team, Reid Whitten was recognized among Foreign Investment Watch’s “Top Advisors 2021.”
According to Foreign Investment Watch:
Reid wrote the book on CFIUS. No, seriously, he wrote the book: It’s called “The CFIUS Book” . . . Blessed with extraordinary cross-border investment expertise and a great sense of humor — he coined the tongue-in-cheek term “CFIUK” to describe the UK’s new FDI regime — Reid brings a unique perspective as head of the firm’s CFIUS practice. Based in London and fluent in French, Reid has represented several French, British and other international companies in CFIUS-related matters, including real-estate deals proximate to U.S. military facilities. Debuting for the first time on our “Top Advisors” list, Reid has a long list of engagements that touch export controls, FCPA, U.S. sanctions, and other matters.
The Top Advisors list is compiled of top lawyers who provide legal advice concerning national security reviews of foreign investments in the U.S. and abroad. Rankings are based on myriad criteria including experience, reputation, clients served, first-person interviews, references, reader recommendations, articles published, interactions with Foreign Investment Watch editors, and more.
