Anne Salladin joined Stroock after nearly 20 years of service in the Office of the Assistant General Counsel for International Affairs of the U.S. Department of the Treasury, which chairs the Committee on Foreign Investment in the United States (“CFIUS”). She is one of the only attorneys from Treasury with experience advising the chair of CFIUS to enter private practice.

As Senior Counsel at the U.S. Department of the Treasury, Ms. Salladin had responsibility for providing legal advice on CFIUS matters and participated in the review and investigation of well over 500 transactions filed with CFIUS, including most of the major Chinese acquisitions of U.S. businesses in recent years. These transactions involved companies or investors from nearly every leading world economy. She also participated in revising and implementing the CFIUS regulations.

In addition to her CFIUS work on behalf of the government, Ms. Salladin negotiated major government-to-government arrangements tied to the Mexican and Asian financial crises, and worked extensively on matters relating to sovereign wealth funds. She also has significant experience in sovereign debt restructuring.

In recognition of her significant contributions during her Treasury career, in particular her work on national security issues, Ms. Salladin is a recipient of the Secretary's Meritorious Service Award. The award citation notes that she was "indispensable in helping [CFIUS] to protect U.S. security in dozens of complex transactions" and is "widely acknowledged as an expert on sovereign debt, [and] a key player in the U.S. efforts to secure global economic stability through the design of sovereign debt restructuring regimes."

Before joining the Treasury Department, Ms. Salladin spent several years with a major international law firm in New York City, where she practiced corporate and securities law and was involved in international transactions. Ms. Salladin began her career as an officer with the Morgan Guaranty Trust Company of New York, where she had responsibility for relationships with Japanese financial institutions. Ms. Salladin has also been quoted frequently in the media, including the South China Morning PostBloomberg and Law360 among others.
