National security investigations and prosecutions have become a top priority for the Department of Justice (DOJ).  In order to counter threats from both within the United States and abroad, the government carefully regulates manufacturing and exportation of sensitive technology running the gamut from semiconductors to weapons of war.  Export controls and sanctions programs can be complicated and counterintuitive, and violations carry serious consequences, including exorbitant fines and imprisonment.  

We have extensive experience representing defense contractors, electrical engineers, chemists, and other individuals under investigation for national security offenses and export crimes.  We proudly represented several academic researchers who were unfairly targeted by the DOJ’s since-discontinued “China Initiative.”  None of our clients were charged with a criminal offense. 

Reassuring, articulate, knowledgeable, and effective. They made the process so much easier and gave me peace of mind in a stressful but successful outcome.
