Sunny Mann named global chair of Baker McKenzie international trade group

Baker McKenzie has appointed Sunny Mann as global chair of the firm’s International Commercial & Trade Practice Group, effective July 1, 2021. Mann is a partner in the firm’s London office, and has also worked in its Washington, New York, Hong Kong and Sydney offices. He advises clients on compliance and investigations with respect to export controls, trade sanctions, anti-bribery and foreign investment rules. He has been with the firm for 21 years and became a partner in 2010, going on to lead the UK International Commercial and Trade Practice.

Mann is also a member of the firm’s Global Diversity & Inclusion Committee.

“I’m incredibly proud to step up to this role leading such a great group that pulls together one of the largest teams of trade and commercial practitioners,” Mann said. “The talented practitioners in our group have been supporting our clients on some of the most critical issues of the day, including navigating trade wars; expansive trade sanctions and foreign investment controls; disruptions to supply chains coming out of the pandemic and Brexit; climate change and sustainability.”

Commenting on this appointment, Baker McKenzie’s global chair Milton Cheng said: “International trade and supply chains are among the most vital areas in which we can help our clients in the current environment. I am really pleased Sunny is taking on the challenge of leading our practice. He is incredibly well-regarded by our people and our clients, and will be a great asset to our global leadership team. His strong commitment to Inclusion further strengthens his leadership credentials within our firm.”
