Foreign Policy Counseling Services We Offer

Below is a list and brief description of the foreign policy counseling services the attorneys at Oberheiden, P.C. are competent to handle and advise our clients upon:

Defense and National Security

  • Foreign policy regularly deals with national security and defense-related matters. Our team has an excellent track record and success in providing our clients with counseling services in this area.
  • We have significant experience advising our clients on national security matters including homeland security, critical infrastructure, and defense contracts with the U.S. government.
  • Our national security team is prepared to provide advice regarding the Foreign Investment Risk Review Modernization Act (“FIRRMA”), which was signed into law in 2018 as well as how FIRRMA broadens the jurisdiction and enhances the authority of the Committee on Foreign Investment in the United States (“CFIUS”). On this point, our firm regularly deals with issues on foreign direct investment in U.S. businesses and the process of filing and responding to CFIUS reviews regarding investments that have possible national security risks.


  • The strength of the nation’s cybersecurity forms a vital component of the proper functioning and maintenance of the United States’ infrastructure and sensitive data.
  • Our cybersecurity defense team is poised to provide counsel to businesses with respect to analyzing (1) potential cybersecurity threats, (2) upcoming cybersecurity threats and trends, (3) privacy and risk management, (4) compliance, (5) protecting sensitive government information, and (5) the intersection of national security and cybersecurity.
  • We regularly work with federal agencies such as the Department of Defense, Department of Homeland Security as well as enforcement agencies such as the SEC, CFTC, DOJ, and FBI to investigate charges made against your company and receive the most advantageous result for you.
  • Our foreign policy consulting services on cybersecurity are critical in today’s modernized and globalized business world.


  • The proper maintenance of diplomacy is essential to foreign policy. Our diplomacy attorneys work to prioritize open dialogue between other foreign governments and to promote international trade, transparency, and relations. We have successfully dealt with matters of sovereignty, government funding, and military aid.
  • Securing a law firm that is experienced and competent to deal in diplomacy matters is important due to the increase in international legal matters and local nature of some areas of law in foreign countries.
  • Our attorneys are competent to provide counseling to our clients on foreign policy issues in other countries.

Economics and International Trade

  • Foreign policy is implicated every time a business makes a decision regarding international trade policies, international investment, or other related international economic-impacting decision. It is therefore critical to be represented and receive foreign policy counseling services on proposed transactions or general advice from an experienced law firm.
  • At Oberheiden, P.C., our attorneys are experienced in providing counseling services on asset controls, requirements for export control, foreign investment compliance under FIRRMA and CFIUS reviews, drafting international agreements as well as providing counseling services on the more peripheral topics in this area, including logistics, manufacturing, technology, broadcasting, and telecommunications.

Corruption and Bribing

  • Providing satisfactory foreign policy services demands an introduction and explanation to our clients of the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act (“FCPA”).
  • The FCPA prohibits, broadly, the bribing of foreign officials to obtain or retain business and requires that companies maintain adequate books, records, and internal controls as a part of their accounting practices.
  • Our FCPA team of defense attorneys routinely advises our clients on anti-bribery and anti-corruption laws, whether the FCPA applies to foreign nationals and foreign companies and under what circumstances, what it means to “bribe” a foreign official or “facilitate” payments, and the potential penalties for FCPA violations.

Foreign Policies on Health and Human Rights

  • Our attorneys are eager to counsel our clients on human rights issues, trafficking charges, narcotics control, travel bans, immigration, healthcare-related frauds and other crimes.
  • We are able to collaborate and explain the process of dealing with foreign parties, international organizations, and NGOs in order to enable our clients to make the most informed decisions.

Political and Governmental Relations

  • Healthy political and governmental relations are at the core of foreign policy decision-making within businesses. It is therefore important to hire a law firm that is experienced in advising clients on the interaction between the two and how they impact foreign policy and the client’s business.
  • At Oberheiden, P.C., our attorneys offer unique strategies and approaches to identify emerging issues in political and governmental relations that have an impact on foreign policy and business operations.
  • We offer counseling services on considering the consequences of policy developments, promoting certain policies on Capitol Hill, shaping and adapting to emerging legislation, responding to new regulations, and evaluating legal options and solutions to various business opportunities involving political and governmental relations that affect foreign policy.
