Ft. Lauderdale, Fla. (March 31, 2022) - Lewis Brisbois has formed a Supply Chain Due Diligence Practice that will assist clients in navigating the issues they continue to face as a result of the many forces currently impacting the global supply chain. The attorneys who comprise Lewis Brisbois' new practice will advise companies on the complex and multi-disciplinary legal matters arising from, among other things, environment, social, and governance (ESG) policies, trade bans (i.e., "deglobalization"), and the U.S. government's efforts to emphasize "green investigations." Fort Lauderdale Partner Sean P. Shecter, a former federal prosecutor, will chair the new practice.
“Companies need to be aware that several methodologically distinct forces are reshaping the global supply chain. Most law firms are not paying attention to this critical area," Mr. Shecter noted when discussing why the firm formally established this practice. "Lewis Brisbois recognizes that companies need trustworthy legal advice to navigate these multi-faceted legal issues, and so it has established this Supply Chain Due Diligence Practice and resource page. With its expansive network, Lewis Brisbois is well-positioned to help companies navigate and address these complex and multi-disciplinary legal issues.”
