National Security, Cyber Security, Export Controls, Terrorism

Matters involving national security are the U.S. Department of Justice’s highest profile and highest priority cases. Several of our former federal prosecutors and special agents were assigned to national security and cybercriminal units while in government service. We draw upon our team’s years of experience investigating and prosecuting high stakes matters involving terrorism, export controls, espionage, economic espionage, and cyber intrusion and hacking cases. We have the expertise to represent parties in all matters of national security, from cases involving allegations of providing material support to terrorist organizations, to significant CIPA (“Classified Information Protection Act”) litigation, to export controls, to cyber intrusion and hacking cases. Our team is also unique in that several of us have been cleared at the highest levels of the U.S. government, including Top Secret clearances and higher. This permits us, when necessary, to quickly reactivate clearances to handle top secret information in sensitive matters.
