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.

    • Our partner Lisa Monaco served as Homeland Security and Counterterrorism Advisor to President Obama and before that as Assistant Attorney General for National Security at the Justice Department, the Department’s top national security lawyer.
    • 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.
