We represent corporations and individuals in matters relating to U.S. government security clearances.

Representative Engagements

  • Counseling companies threatened with the loss of corporate facilities security clearances upon acquisition of a significant interest by a foreign entity, or upon the appointment of a non-U.S. citizen to the board of directors or a key management position
  • Negotiating with the Defense Security Service to implement acceptable mechanisms for clients to obtain or retain a facility security clearance and to mitigate the effect of the Foreign Ownership, Control, or Influence (FOCI) requirements, including Special Security Agreements, Security Control Agreements, Voting Trust Agreements, Proxy Agreements, and board resolutions
  • Assisting companies in threatened or actual breaches of security requirements and in security clearance investigations
  • Counseling and litigating appeals when the government determines that an individual ceases to be qualified for a personal security clearance or fails to qualify for a higher level of clearance
