Daniel Andreeff

Baker & McKenzie LLP


Daniel Andreeff is a senior associate in the Firm’s International Trade practice and advises clients on economic and trade sanctions, export controls, and antiboycott laws and regulations. He also represents clients in national security reviews before the Committee on Foreign Investment in the United States (CFIUS) and plans and executes non-US foreign investment reviews across dozens of jurisdictions.

Practice Focus

Daniel advises clients on sanctions programs maintained by the United States which target Russia, Iran, Syria, Cuba, the Crimea, Donetsk, and Luhansk regions of Ukraine, North Korea, Venezuela, Belarus, and SDNs and other restricted parties. He counsels clients on sanctions compliance and on the interpretation of new sanctions authorities and general licenses, prepares and submits license applications and voluntary self-disclosures, develops sanctions compliance policies, and conducts internal investigations.

Daniel’s export controls practice focuses on advising clients on compliance with the US Export Administration Regulations, on restrictions imposed under the Entity List and other restricted party lists, and on preparing license applications, classification requests, and voluntary self-disclosures. Daniel also advises clients on compliance with the antiboycott requirements maintained by the Department of Commerce and the Department of the Treasury.

Daniel represents clients in national security reviews before CFIUS in transactions involving foreign investments in US businesses. He counsels clients on mandatory and voluntary filing considerations, prepares CFIUS notices, and represents clients in negotiations of national security agreements with CFIUS. Daniel has represented clients engaged in multibillion-dollar sales or purchases of U.S. technology businesses before CFIUS.

Daniel assists clients in determining when their transactions trigger filing requirements in any of the dozens of jurisdictions which maintain foreign investment controls, and in preparing filings and securing approval from those jurisdictions’ regulators. He plans and executes these foreign investment reviews in close collaboration with teams of Firm and local counsel in each jurisdiction, and monitors and advises clients on new and emerging foreign investment controls.

In his pro bono practice, Daniel serves as sanctions and export controls counsel to humanitarian NGOs concerning their operations in Syria, Afghanistan, Lebanon, Gaza, Venezuela, and other sanctioned jurisdictions.

Prior to joining the Firm, Daniel interned at the Department of the Treasury’s Office of Foreign Assets Control (OFAC) and completed a Princeton in Asia Fellowship in Beijing, China.
