Law360 has recognized San Francisco partner and co-chair of Morrison & Foerster’s Global Risk and Crisis Management Group Alex Iftimie on its Rising Stars list for 2021. The annual Rising Stars list recognizes the accomplishments of the top attorneys under the age of 40 whose “legal accomplishments transcend their age.” This year, Law360’s editors reviewed more than 1,400 submissions to arrive at its list of 180 rising legal stars, including only four attorneys for the cybersecurity and privacy practice area.
Alex’s practice involves advising clients on sensitive cyber and U.S. national security matters, internal investigations, and government enforcement actions. Alex advises Fortune 500 and high-growth clients on all aspects of breach preparedness and response, including counseling executives on cybersecurity governance and risk management, and responding to cyber incidents ranging from ransomware attacks to nation-state sponsored economic espionage.
Drawing on his experience at the National Security Division of the U.S. Department of Justice, Alex also advises global entities on legal obligations related to the Foreign Agents Registration Act (FARA); foreign investment transactions before the Committee on Foreign Investment in the United States (CFIUS); and laws related to material support for terrorism, sanctions, and export controls.
