HIALSA Is delighted to welcome renowned thought-leader, Mr. Andrew ‘Andy’ Shoyer to Harvard Law School for HIALSA’s first on-campus lunchtime talk of the year: ‘Forging a Career in International Trade Disputes’

About the speaker:

Mr. Shoyer co-leads Sidley’s Global Arbitration, Trade and Advocacy practice. He focuses on the implementation and enforcement of international trade and investment agreements. Mr. Shoyer also advises companies on compliance with sanctions administered by the U.S. Treasury Department’s Office of Foreign Assets Control (OFAC) and export controls and anti-boycott rules administered by the U.S. Department of Commerce’s Bureau of Industry and Security (BIS), as well as proceedings before the Committee on Foreign Investment in the United States (CFIUS). Drawing on his experience at the Office of the U.S. Trade Representative (USTR) and with the World Trade Organization (WTO), Andy advises companies, trade associations and governments on the use of WTO, USMCA and other treaty-based trade and investment rules to open markets and resolve disputes.

Mr. Shoyer’s leadership in the international trade and dispute settlement arena is widely recognized. He is consistently ranked among the nation’s top international trade lawyers by Chambers USA and Who’s Who Legal. He was recognized by Who’s Who Legal: Trade & Customs as a “Global Elite Thought Leader.”
