Morrison & Foerster’s national security practice, led by John Carlin and Nick Spiliotes, provides strategic advice and counseling to clients on a broad range of challenging regulatory and compliance matters in the national security space as outlined below. John Carlin is the former Assistant Attorney General in charge of the U.S. Department of Justice’s (DOJ) National Security Division (NSD) where he was the lead for DOJ on CFIUS and other enforcement matters; he also served as Chief of Staff to the Director of the Federal Bureau of Investigation. Nick Spiliotes has decades of experience advising U.S. and foreign clients on CFIUS matters; before joining the firm he served as a U.S. Foreign Service Officer and staff member on the National Security Council at the White House.
Each of these regulatory regimes presents unique challenges to business planning and operations of U.S. and non-U.S. entities that need to be addressed in connection with diligence, obtaining required approvals, implementing appropriate compliance programs, and engaging with the U.S. government on potential enforcement matters. Our experience enables us to identify practical solutions tailored to the business needs of our clients.
