Regulatory & Government Affairs
In an increasingly global economy, O’Melveny helps clients navigate the legal issues that arise while doing business—no matter where they are.
With extensive and longstanding connections to the government, we have a special insight into the political trends, policymaking agendas, and pitfalls confronting clients. Our partners include former top White House officials, in addition to former top attorneys at the Department of Justice, the Commerce Department, the Securities and Exchange Commission, and key House and Senate Committees, among other government agencies.
- Chambers USA notes that of counsel Ted Kassinger “brings to private practice the political insight gained during his tenure as Deputy Secretary of the Department of Commerce.”
- Our partner Steve Olson served as Executive Director of SelectUSA, President Barack Obama’s initiative to attract increased investment in the United States by international businesses.
- Our Congressional Investigations practice specializes in responding to Congressional subpoenas, preparing clients to testify before Congressional committees, managing public relations, political strategy and collateral litigation, and representing members in ethics inquiries and related criminal investigations.
