Bloomberg Law: National Security Experience a Growing Draw for Big LawSeptember 25, 2019
O’Melveny partner Steve Bunnell was quoted in this article about the firm’s addition of several former government officials with backgrounds in national security.
“The line between the economy and national security has been blurred,” said Bunnell, a former Department of Homeland Security general counsel. “Clients want broad advice because they are operating around the world, and they need to know how their strategy and their products interplay with other countries.”
In addition to Bunnell, O’Melveny has hired partner Lisa Monaco, President Obama’s former Homeland Security and Counterterrorism advisor, and counsel John Dermody, a former deputy legal advisor at the National Security Council.
