Classified Information Services

Morgan Lewis fields a team of lawyers and supporting professional staff well versed in classified-matter issues, with team members holding active security clearances issued by the US Department of Energy (DOE) and other federal agencies. We maintain our own DOE-approved facility equipped with communication channels that—depending on the matter at issue—allow us to work with classified information at our offices, thus reducing travel costs.

Our team advises on all phases of the classified information life cycle, from establishing hiring protocols and acquiring security clearances and foreign ownership certifications to mature programs involving investigations, government contracts disputes, and complex litigation. We assist clients on regulatory, environmental, transactional, and adjudicatory matters, and we work with government contractors on an array of complex legal, regulatory, contractual, and operational issues.
