Brandon Van Grack, Former Mueller Prosecutor and DOJ ‘Foreign Agent’ Chief, Joins Morrison & Foerster

03 Feb 2021

Brandon Van Grack spoke to The National Law Journal about his decision to join Morrison & Foerster after more than a decade at the U.S. Justice Department, where he played a leading role in the investigation into the Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election.

“I worked with folks at Morrison & Foerster over the years, and really respect and admire them,” Brandon said, adding that he was drawn to the firm as an “industry leader in national security and investigations,” which made joining the firm “a very quick process, because it made sense on all those levels.”

Brandon said he envisions developing a practice drawing on his experience enforcing disclosure laws for foreign influence and background with national security reviews, conducted by the Committee on Foreign Investment in the U.S., or CFIUS, of acquisitions and other investments in U.S. companies. Describing national security as “increasingly complex and intertwined,” Brandon said, “We’ve reached a point where, in order to service clients in this field, you can’t be an expert in just one [area].”
