    Celebrating AAPI Heritage Month (ft. Shari Mao and Sang Shin)

    Celebrating AAPI Heritage Month (ft. Shari Mao and Sang Shin)

    At Jackson Walker, we are extremely proud of our Asian American and Pacific Islander (AAPI) attorneys and allied professionals who have brought leadership and helped shape the Firm into what it is today. As May marks AAPI Heritage Month, our partners Shari Mao and Sang Shin shared how their upbringings shaped their careers.

    Shari, a Corporate & Securities partner in San Antonio, reflected on her experience growing up with one foot in the U.S. and another in Taiwan. She also shared her unconventional path to practicing law, starting out on Wall Street before helping run—and eventually sell—her family's business.

    Sang, a Business Immigration & Compliance partner in Houston, walked through his family's experience emigrating from South Korea and the struggles he observed as his parents worked their way through the immigration system, which inspired him to start his own immigration practice.

    We all have individual and shared experiences in our lives which shape our heritage and cultures. At Jackson Walker, we are proud to have leaders like Shari Mao and Sang Shin who enrich the Firm's culture by sharing their stories and experiences with us. Please join us in celebrating Asian American and Pacific Islander Heritage Month. Visit our Diversity & Inclusion page for more information about our efforts to create a more diverse and inclusive environment for all.

    Robert Soza on Protection of Critical Infrastructure via LIPA and ICTS

    Robert Soza on Protection of Critical Infrastructure via LIPA and ICTS

    When it comes to critical infrastructure such as electricity, water treatment, internet connectivity, and hazardous waste management, many fear that foreign governments may find ways to infiltrate those systems. To proactively prevent this sort of hacking, the U.S. federal government and states like Texas have instituted regulations and laws that prohibit businesses or individuals from engaging in commercial transactions with certain foreign nations. This episode features Robert Soza discussing the Lone Star Infrastructure Protection Act (LIPA) and regulations from the U.S. Department of Commerce on the Information and Communications Technologies (ICT) supply chain. Tune in as Robert shares what businesses need to understand regarding their potential liability for installing and using technology components manufactured in countries like China and Russia.

    See the article “Texas and Federal Government Seek to Protect U.S. Infrastructure From Disruption by Foreign Adversaries” for more information. For questions related to LIPA, ICTS regulations, and international trade laws, please contact Robert Soza or any member of Jackson Walker’s International Transactions team.

    How the $1.2 Trillion Infrastructure Plan Affects Texas

    With President Biden signing the $1.2 trillion infrastructure bill into law, Texas is set to receive an estimated $35.4 billion to improve infrastructure. Litigation associate Amanda Crouch and governmental affairs consultant Kate Goodrich walk through a number of projects listed in the plan and discuss how improvements for Texas roads, highways, bridges, broadband, ports, and more are allocated in the law. In addition, there is also money set aside to winterize the Texas energy grid to help prevent future reoccurrences of the major outages from the February freeze earlier this year.

    Updated Rules for Entry Into the United States

    Arthur Gollwitzer – Navigating Potential COVID Relief and Healthcare Fraud Issues

    Arthur Gollwitzer – Navigating Potential COVID Relief and Healthcare Fraud Issues

    With billions of dollars distributed over the past 18 months through the Paycheck Protection Program (PPP) and the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security (CARES) Act, there was plenty of opportunity for fraudulent activity. Jackson Walker litigation partner Arthur Gollwitzer discusses how the U.S. Department of Justice has made the intersection between COVID relief and fraud—particularly healthcare fraud—one of their absolute highest priorities.

    While there are examples of obvious fraud, even legitimate businesses may trigger investigations if they are not familiar with the complex and changing rules and regulations surrounding COVID relief funds. Should a business or individual be approached by the authorities, Art advises seeking legal counsel before speaking with a federal agent.

    For questions about investigations related to COVID relief and fraud, please contact Arthur Gollwitzer or any member of Jackson Walker’s White Collar Defense & Government Enforcement team. For specific assistance or more information concerning PPP loans, please contact John Wittenberg or Lindsey Berwick. Additional information on the CARES Act, the PPP, and other COVID-19 stimulus may be found at JW.com/Coronavirus.
