Given the UK’s proactive stance on sanctions enforcement – and its significant influence on financial services and global supply chain matters – Michelle will be an asset to our clients in a broad array of cross-border trade issues, including sanctions, export controls, and anti-money laundering.”

Linderman joins from Ince & Co. where she was the global head of the sanctions team. She earned her B.A. from the University of Leeds in modern Chinese studies.
