DLA Piper’s head of global equity set to serve on Industry Trade Advisory Committee
DLA Piper has announced that Dean Fealk, a partner in the law firm’s San Francisco office, has been named as a trade adviser in a joint appointment by US trade representative Michael Froman and US secretary of commerce Penny Pritzker.
Fealk will serve on the Industry Trade Advisory Committee (ITAC), which focuses on information and communications technologies, services and electronic commerce. ITAC links industries and the US government in formulating US trade policy. The advisers serving on ITAC provide input as the Obama administration advances its trade agenda to improve economic opportunities for US businesses, workers and consumers.
Fealk, who is the head of DLA Piper’s global equity practice, advises multinational companies on a range of legal and strategic issues related to international business matters that implicate corporate, securities, regulatory, tax, labour, foreign exchange and data privacy.
He is active in business and civic leadership in California, serving on the board of directors of the Bay Area Council and the California Business Roundtable. He is a member of the US Department of Commerce’s Northern California District Export Council and represented the state of California in governor Edmund Brown Jr’s official trade and investment delegation to the People’s Republic of China in 2013. He is also a graduate of Leadership San Francisco and the executive leadership programme at Harvard Business School.
