National Security Conversations: Get Smart About Export Controls

In addition to the recent, highly publicized regulatory actions due to the conflict in Ukraine, the United States government has been steadily turning up the heat on sanctions and export controls targeting Russia for years.

Vinson & Elkins’ National Security authority, Rick Sofield, and Commercial & Business litigator, Crystal Stapley, discuss how U.S. export controls and the Committee on Foreign Investment in the United States (“CFIUS”) review process protect U.S. national security interests from bad actors in countries like Russia.

In addition, they discuss how to “get smart” about the convergence of multiple national security governing regimes, including the relationship between export controls and CFIUS.
