Boasting international recognition in areas including U.S. investment and international trade regulatory issues related to China, Roy (Ruoweng) Liu is the newest partner of New York-based international law firm. Liu will serve as chair of the Greater China practice for the firm’s Sanctions, Export Controls & Anti-Money Laundering practice.
“As one of the few U.S. trade attorneys based in Washington, D.C., who can advise clients in Mandarin Chinese, Roy Liu brings substantial strengths and unique perspective to Hughes Hubbard,” said Ted Mayer, chair of Hughes Hubbard.
“We are thrilled to have him join our talented team, and we believe his experience, particularly with export controls, economic sanctions, CFIUS, and China-related trade issues, will be extremely valuable to our clients, especially amidst a potentially long-term trade war.”
Liu brings with him a Bachelor of Arts from Williams College and a Juris Doctorate from Stanford University Law School. His professional background includes addressing challenges related to the Entity List, U.S. export controls and economic sanctions, reviews and investigations by the Committee on Foreign Investment in the United States (CFIUS), Foreign Corrupt Practices Act (FCPA), and anti-money laundering (AML). Liu also brings substantial experience in client advising pertaining to a variety of regulatory environments.
“I am excited to join the nimble and effective team at Hughes Hubbard,” said Liu. “I look forward to partnering with their world-renowned International Trade, investigations, and white collar practices.”
