(November 6, 2019, Washington, DC) — Global Investigations Review (GIR) has named Ed Krauland to its list of the 25 most respected sanctions lawyers in Washington, DC. The list is featured in a November 1 article titled "The DC Sanctions Lawyers to Have on Speed Dial."
To compile the list, GIR editors spent several months surveying dozens of practitioners, asking them which individual lawyers they would trust to represent them in a hypothetical sanctions case and why. Coupled with a review of publicly available information to discern which individuals are working on the most significant cases, GIR editors whittled down the list to 25 DC-based practitioners at the top of the field, with a maximum of one lawyer per firm.
Krauland is a 37-year veteran of Steptoe and serves as co-chair of the firm's Export Controls, Economic Sanctions, and Anti-Money Laundering practices. Over his career, Krauland has acted for companies and individuals in investigations by the Office of Foreign Assets Control, the Department of Justice and the Commerce Department. He also served as co-chair of the International Trade Committee of the American Bar Association’s section of international law.
