Our Focus

Regulations are rapidly changing. Globalization is getting more complicated. ArentFox Schiff helps clients navigate this reality.

Our National Security practice advises a diverse set of companies and investors as they address cyber and financial threats and risks – and the US government’s intense regulatory focus on this space. Acting as strategic advisors, we help our clients traverse rapidly evolving, increasingly regulated, and often politicized environments to deliver results and advance interests.

The firm stands apart because of our integrated and innovative approach to problem-solving. From regulatory requirements and policy advocacy to internal investigations and complex disputes, we are a destination firm for clients operating in the national security space.
