Homeland Security/Defense

Recent events in our nation’s history have led to heightened recognition, both in government and in the private sector, that significant efforts are needed to protect lives and secure critical infrastructure and services from both man-made attacks and natural disasters. Federal, state and local government authorities are looking to the private sector to address many of these challenges.

We provide clients with advice on the Patriot Act, other federal laws and regulations on homeland security and the defense industry, and proposed rules and emerging practices of the Department of Homeland Security (DHS), and other federal and state government entities in the field. Our professionals review and help prepare specific security-related protocols, including vulnerability assessments, legal contingency plans, privacy procedures and crisis management plans that reflect experience with the expectations of government agencies.
