Miller & Chevalier Adds Daniel A. Solomon as Member in the International Department
Washington, DC, January 3, 2022 – Miller & Chevalier Chartered is pleased to announce that Daniel (Dan) A. Solomon has joined the firm as a Member in the International Department. Solomon comes to the firm from Smith Pachter McWhorter PLC.
Solomon's practice focuses on a wide range of anti-corruption and trade compliance matters, including U.S. Foreign Corrupt Practices Act (FCPA) enforcement actions and investigations, internal and government investigations, economic sanctions, and export controls. He has significant, on-the-ground experience helping businesses navigate complex regulatory and compliance risks in China.
"Dan's broad range of experience, coupled with his deep insight into China's legal and business environments, makes him a fantastic addition to our practice," said James Tillen, Chair of Miller & Chevalier's International Department. "China is an active region for FCPA investigations, sanctions, forced labor, human rights, and trade issues; adding Dan's experience will greatly strengthen our team's ability to provide counsel in a jurisdiction that can be quite challenging to our clients."
Solomon served as General Counsel of SAIC General Motors Corporation Limited in Shanghai, China, and was the Lead Counsel of Global Compliance and the Executive Director for Special Investigations and Anti-Corruption for the General Motors Company (GM). Before his time at GM, Solomon was the Assistant General Counsel for Trade, Compliance, and Policy at Monsanto Company. Stemming from his experience in-house, Solomon is well-versed in the nuances of the automotive and manufacturing industries.
"I'm confident our clients will appreciate Dan's pragmatic, business-centric approach to legal advice and problem-solving, which aligns with ours," said Kathryn Cameron Atkinson, Chair of Miller & Chevalier. "His many years spent in corporate legal departments has provided him invaluable insights into companies' needs and challenges, and his time living and working in China lends the cultural fluency we prize in our international practice."
"Miller & Chevalier boasts one of the longest-standing, preeminent anti-corruption practices in the legal profession, having handled some of the most high-profile FCPA investigations and monitorships over the last several years," said Solomon. "I had the pleasure of working with the firm when I was in-house and experienced firsthand the high quality of service that Miller & Chevalier lawyers provide. I'm thrilled to be joining this team."
Solomon earned a J.D. from Washington University School of Law and a B.A. from Michigan State University.
