Global Advisory Firm Adds Experienced Practitioners to Assist Clients in Mitigating Risk

StoneTurn, a global advisory firm that assists companies, their counsel and government agencies on regulatory, risk and compliance issues, investigations, monitorships and business disputes, today announced that Scott Boylan has joined as a Senior Adviser based in Washington, DC.

The former Senior Policy Advisor to the Secretary of the U.S. Department of Homeland Security, Scott Boylan applies his hands-on knowledge of all aspects of the Committee on Foreign Investment in the United States (CFIUS) to help clients negotiate mitigation agreements and establish leading operating protocols to ensure CFIUS compliance. He draws upon experience gained as the Chief Legal Officer of CFIUS-mitigated companies to provide businesses with critical insights into any potential cross-border investments.  Scott will lead our work with companies in the international trade arena, including advising counsel and companies on CFIUS-related challenges and sanctions compliance.

“As oversight of business activity becomes more rigorous and complex, StoneTurn is increasingly called upon to provide highly specialized knowledge,” said Christopher Martinez, StoneTurn’s Managing Partner and Co-Founder. “Scott brings in-depth knowledge of the unique compliance challenges faced by organizations serving the government, delivering audit services, or those with foreign ownership, control, or influence.”

Prior to joining StoneTurn, Scott served as general counsel for MorphoTrust USA and senior counsel for GE. He also held leadership positions in several government agencies, including the U.S. Departments of Homeland Security (DHS), Treasury and Justice (DOJ). At DHS, Scott was responsible for developing and implementing the CFIUS process at the department’s inception. He is a member of the District of Columbia Bar and Massachusetts State Bar Associations.
