Access to US Government Marketplace
One way to access and expand in the US market is through mergers and acquisitions. We help clients understand and comply with the various, and often confusing, regulatory requirements imposed by the US government on its contractors and subcontractors. Our lawyers share their insights and experience in due diligence investigations, contract novations, small business issues, and terms and conditions that are unique to these transactions.
We also help non-US companies navigate the additional legal issues involved in acquisitions of companies in the US defense industrial base, including clearing reviews by the Committee on Foreign Investment in the United States (CFIUS) and advising on International Traffic in Arms Regulation (ITAR) notices and approvals.
Access to Emerging Markets
You can rely on our proven expertise and strong representation on the ground in emerging markets. Our global reach ensures that we have lawyers who are fluent in local languages and customs, experienced in local regulations and ready to support your expansion in areas such as China and the Middle East.
Our legal team is armed with the knowledge and experience to help you navigate the complex landscape of compliance. We have the compliance program tools and training material to implement global compliance programs in export controls, anticorruption, competition, data privacy, customs and government procurement. With industry-relevant expertise, we understand the key issues that you need to know about.
Sale, Distribution and Supply Chain Agreements
We offer substantial experience negotiating commercial sales, distribution, and supply chain agreements. We can also guide you through government procurements, including providing advice on subcontracts, teaming agreements, and joint ventures.

Defense and National Security Policy
Our extensive knowledge of policy and political issues helps our clients map out not only a legal strategy, but also a complementary public policy advocacy plan aimed at key executive and legislative branch influencers. Members of our group, including former US senators who served on Armed Services and Appropriations committees and senior defense officials, advise US and foreign companies on the full range of challenges they face when doing business with the US government, in particular the Department of Defense.
